Hi All, Can someone help with this error, atimes, when we try to open web pages in my network, everyone just keeps seeing the underlisted error. At other times it happens for some websites, and i notice this just happens by itself. I use HTTP Proxy to block some websites though....wonder if that might have a hand in it.



ERROR
The requested URL could not be retrieved

The following error was encountered while trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.badoo.com/

    Unable to determine IP address from host name "www.badoo.com"

The DNS server returned:

    Name Error: The domain name does not exist.

This means that the cache was not able to resolve the hostname presented in the URL. Check if the address is correct.

Your cache administrator is webmaster.

If we can take the message at face value, it sounds like there are interruptions in Zentyal's ability to reach an external DNS server. I doubt that it's connected with the block list.

Yeah, thats a DNS problem. Check if your first DNS server is working properly.
