CAUSE

Incorrect entry in hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts).

FIX or WORKAROUND

  1. Edit "hosts" file in the location above to match address in WDHCP Server Configuration window.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

On occasions, host file opens as "read-only" and will not be saved correctly due to limited user account privileges. Waters recommends that you save edited file into different location (such as Desktop) and then manually overwrite it using administrator privileges or administrator account.
