SAP WebIDE got error "catalog service is unavailable, please try again"

Hello.

I want to make a little demo project with SAP Fiori elements based on the ABAP OData services. As I understand, only SAP WebIDE has a project template for them and there is no way to use HANA Studio (am I correct?). I've got SAP Web IDE personal edition and SAP Netweaver ABAP 7.5 developer edition at the same machine. NW 7.5 runs in Virtualbox and WebIDE runs on the host system.

I've created a destination to the ABAP system and when I try to create a new project in WebIDE, I've got an error "NPL Catalog service is unavailable, please try again" at the step "Data Connection". The destination itself is avalilable in the WebIDE.

My destination:

Description=NPL
Type=HTTP
TrustAll=true
Authentication=NoAuthentication
Name=NPL
ProxyType=Internet
URL=https\://vhcalnplci.dummy.nodomain\:8000
WebIDEUsage=odata_abap,odata_gen,ui5_execute_abap,dev_abap,bsp_execute_abap
WebIDESystem=NPL
WebIDEEnabled=true
sap-client=001

In the Developer tools of Chrome I've got the following error:

GET http://localhost:9090/webidedispatcher/destinations/NPL/sap/opu/odata/IWFND/CATALOGSERVICE;v=2/ServiceCollection?sap-client=001&$format=json 500 (Server Error)

    Did you ever get this working...

    I'm trying to do exactly the same thing local Web IDE and consume odata services from a Trial edition of NW 7.5 running in Virtualbox.

    My destination is also being overiden to localhost instead of my actual virtualbox server:

    I have no problem accessing my odata services from chrome with the link below:
