This shows a failure in resolving the host name and is indicative of a DNS malfunction in your system. If you have a dialup connection, this might be a sign that the connection is broken or not established at all.

In older versions of IPWorks most of the time this results from not having set WinsockLoaded to True before attempting to resolve set the host name.

If WinsockLoaded is indeed True, and WinsockStatus and WinsockInfo return meaningful values, then the error is indicative of a DNS malfunction in your system. (If you have a dialup connection, this might be a sign that the connection is broken or not established at all).
