webclip portlet problem

Hi ,

I am trying to use webclip portlet but when I specify the URL and try to load the page it gives me following error message.

An error occurred loading http://www.rediff.com/
java.net.UnknownHostException: www.rediff.com

I am not using proxy server to connect to internet.

Please help me resolve this issue.


You should probably check to make sure that the machine the portal is running on can ping that site.

Could you open up a command shell on the same machine as the portal and try to ping www.rediff.com please?


For local networks within an organization, access to the public-domain Internet is often via a HTTP Proxy.

Command Line JVM Settings
The proxy settings are given to the JVM via command line arguments:

$ java -Dhttp.proxyHost=proxyhostURL
-Dhttp.proxyPassword=somePassword javaClassToRun
