tFileFetch error: host parameter is null

tFileFetch error: host parameter is null

For a customer, I am trying to make a very simple job. This job merely retrieves several files from one location, converts them to csv's and uploads them. Having made a similar job a while ago, I tried using the same approach, with a tFileFetch component. I've set this up in the most simple way, but unfortunately I get an error and I haven't been able to solve it yet.
Below is are two screenshots of my setup.
The error I get is:
Exception in component tFileFetch_1
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: host parameter is null
But I'm not using the host-parameters...
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
