I am creating a URL =new URL("www.somesite.com/pdf/pdfa.pdf");
When this Servlet is invoked , I am getting this error.


I get error
IOException msg=Operation timed out: connect:could be due to invalid address: null
java.net.SocketException: Operation timed out: connect:could be due to invalid address

This URL when hit by a browser can be accessed.
More about the box on which the servlet is .
It is a WebSphere WAS6.1 server which is having two address IP Sec.
It is a DMZ box .
Anyone having any idea why I would not be able to access this URL ?
Any idea how to go about debugging this on a WAS 6.1 environment.


Thanks

It isn't a valid URL, that's all. Nothing to do with Websphere at all. Try this instead:
 
Squanch that. And squanch this tiny ad:
