When I try to Debug my project I receive "Unable to launch target VM" error messages.

I can run the project in release mode just fine.

I'm not sure where to begin, so here's some of my system details: jdk 1.3 for Idea, 1.4.1 w/ Assert support on for my project, using Tomcat, Ant, JUnit.

The problem may be caused by the gethostbyname method failure. Sockets
transport uses a host name and resolves it to a valid IP address, but
for some reason it's not possible on your PC. There is a workaround:
add a proper entry to your hosts file. You can check that
gethostbyname works by calling 'ping
machine_name_you_have_specified_in_debug_options'. If ping passes,
then debugger should work.
