IP override host resolution fails
IP Override host resolution fails
This is shown if Azureus cannot DNS resolve the internet address (domain) name given in either the
Tools->Options...->Server: Override IP address sent to tracker
Tools->Options...->Tracker: Tracker external IP address
It needs to resolve to an IP address in order to send it to the tracker as part of the standard tracker announce protocol. The solution is to either ensure that the DNS name can be resolved, put the DNS name in your "hosts" file, or use an IP address directly in the config rather than a domain name.
Note that currently the behaviour when resolution fails is to use the non-resolved name, but this is non-standard and might not be accepted by trackers.
