Re: DNSException: Error trying to resolve

the device is not able to resolve the ip address for an hostname.
try to use another hostname (full qualified domain name, for example, if you are in a domain) or use an ip address.

please mark posts as solved if you found a solution.

Re: DNSException: Error trying to resolve


I think the problem is your simulator's Internet connection,

the simulator can't resolve the domain name to ip address.


may be you want to test the connection to IP address (for example: )?
