Hi,

I'm new to the WTP, my first task is trying to set up a server.

When ever I try to setup a new server and enter the hostname for my server
the list of selectable servers get's empty.
I'm using eclipse 3.2M4, wst 1.5.0 on XP service pack 2 with several
different servlet and EE web servers installed and running.

In the documentation I find that hostname is a DNS name -
that's surely wrong, hostname seems to be "localhost" or failure.

Can someone clarify what hostname for wst really is?
If that is not a dns name would it not better not to call it hostname ?

My XP box has around 30 host names, all of them I could use except one -
localhost.

Heinz
