SAP on Ubuntu > Correct settings for etc/hosts?



I installed the SAP test drive version on Ubuntu (VirtualBox). After starting the SAP GUI (

/home/minisap/SAPClients/SAPGUI7.20rev5/bin/guistart /H/ubuntu64/S/3242

) I get the following error:

Error: partner 'ubuntu64:3242' not reached
Sun Feb  5 14:07:26 2012
Release 720
Component NI (network interface), version 40
rc = -10, module nixxi.cpp, line 3286
Detail NiPConnect2:
System Call connect
Error No 111
'Connection refused'

I guess that the settings of the file etc/hosts are not correct. After the installation of ubuntu the file contains    ubuntu64    # Added by NetworkManager    localhost.localdomain    localhost
::1    ubuntu64    localhost6.localdomain6    localhost6    ubuntu64
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

According to the test drive readme file I have to ensure that etc/hosts contain at least the following lines: 	localhost 	
n.n.n.n 	nplhost 	
where "n.n.n.n" is a valid IP-adress.

I tried different settings but the above mentioned error still occurs... Does anyone know the correct settings of etc/hosts or know what the problem could be?

Thanks and regards
