Cannot upload - The remote name could not be resolved: 'carius.vbaddict.net'
For the last few weeks, I cannot upload at all. This used to work OK. I see the error shown below in the log:
188.8.131.52 18:25:50: Trying to connect...
184.108.40.206 18:25:50: Error: The remote name could not be resolved: 'carius.vbaddict.net'
220.127.116.11 18:25:50: Offline: Have to stay offline, but will check for connectivity regulary
If I do nslookup, I get:
I thought maybe a temporary issue, but it has been happening for a long time now and never changes. I tried the 'Reset ADU' option but it did not help.
It has to be a temporary problem, as this is the primary uploading server.
There were 2306 successful uploads in the last 5 minutes.
It's definitely not temporary, it has been happening for a long time now and even if I leave it running for days it can never connect. It may be a network issue here, I will keep looking into it and see if I can discover anything.
OK - found the problem - Comodo Internet Security was causing the error message, add as a trusted application and it works. Oddly it did not prompt that it was being blocked, and to be honest I had forgotten that I even installed that software. Hope this helps someone else!
