Why do I get the error: "The requested name is valid and was found in the database, but it does not have the correct associated data being resolved for"?

The problem is that the DNS server you are using cannot resolve the domain name into an IP address (there are records for this hostname, but not an A (address) record).

There are a couple of possibilities here:

  • Try using the correct host name like 'www.domain.com' instead of 'domain.com'.
  • Avoid the runtime DNS resolution and replace the RemoteHost/URL/Server/etc with the hosts numerical ip address value.
