Host not resolvable

Hi anyone,


I get this message

Host not resolvable

from my McAfee web gateway 9.2.9  when I try to reach  site from google search.

Do you have any idea how to solve that problem?


Thanks in advance

Re: Host not resolvable

Hi @BigMuzzy 

What do you see when you browse the reported domain directly in the browser.

Request you to check below community article

This message will be displayed if Web Gateway is unable to contact the DNS server or if the DNS server returns a “No Such Name” response

To fix this issue the DNS would need to be configured with an “A” record for the reported URL. A workaround could also be put in place on the Web Gateway’s hosts file.
