: I'm trying to do an Internet update through a proxy server but all I get is "Error: 11004 returned from [gethostbyaddr_prox]"
: I have entered the ip addr and the port number into the fields in the internet retrieve settings screen. Our firewall does not allow FTP's but it allows HTTP's though. I have successfully configured Yahoo messenger and Go!zilla to work through the firewall.

Hi Jose,
The error codes are at:

Here is your specific error:

Valid name, no data record of requested type.
The requested name is valid and was found in the database, but it does not have the correct associated data being resolved for. The usual example for this is a hostname -> address translation attempt (using gethostbyname or WSAAsyncGetHostByName) which uses the DNS (Domain Name Server), and an MX record is returned but no A record - indicating the host itself exists, but is not directly reachable.

This sounds like something is not working properly with your proxy.
Does your proxy have a name you could try, rather than the IP address?
