When I press the "Fetch" button of the API, I find the following
messages about gethostbyname() in the trace:
HTHost 0043EA30 going to state TCP_CHANNEL.
HTHost 0043EA30 going to state TCP_DNS.
Error....... Add  73    Severity: 1     Parameter: `WinSock reported error=10093'       Where: `gethostbyname'
HTDoConnect. Can't locate `abel.metis.no'
Error....... Add  51    Severity: 1     Parameter: `abel.metis.no'      Where: `HTDoConnect'
HTHost 0043EA30 going to state TCP_ERROR.
HTHost 0043EA30 going to state TCP_BEGIN.

hints and tips as to why this is, are appreciated.
