While using the instructions posted here to setup the IOTA wallet , I keep running into one basic problem which is likely an easy fix. Here are the steps I followed and the spot where there is a stop:

  1. I downloaded the GUI .dmg file for IOTA wallet
  2. I moved the file into applications
  3. I launched the wallet
  4. I choose “Light mode”
  5. The field for “Host” is entirely blank     ???
