When I try to sign into WLM, it tells me "Your host file contains WLM related entries which may interfere with name resoluition." Then, there is a "Repair" option, and when I click that, it asks me If I would Like to clean up my host files. Then, it says it made several atempts to connect, and it says my firewall might be blocking it...but I checked my firewall, and it allows WLM to do whatever it wants to. Any help would be great.
