The hosts file now looks like this:
Thus, I have commented out 127.0.0.1 and replaced it by 192.168.2.3. Is
this like it should be?
It might be important to mention that I have installed McAfee Security
Center. How can I check the port settings?

The problem was solved by copying dt_socket.dll from a
JBuilder-subdirectory to c:\windows\system32. The hosts file was not
relevant, so it seems.

Whoa, never do that.. You definitely want to keep localhost as 127.0.0.1.
Whatever the reason for your debug session not starting up, it's not
related to that. Why don't you post the *full text* of the error message
you get when you try to start a debug process?
