I have recently installed the W3C Validator service on a Fedora 4
I am able now to validate uploaded files or by typing in HTML text.
When I try and validate a Uri I get the following error message (I
tested by validating www.gogole.com)
500 Can't connect to www.google.com:80 (Bad hostname 'www.Google.com')
I have also then tried with the IP address and I get permission denied
instead of Bad hostname.
I have tested also with localhost and get the same error message.
I have tested internet connection and DNS entries and are able to
resolve DNS and also able to connect with browser.
I have also disabled IPtables to see if it was a firewall issue but
still have the problem.
Does anyone have an idea as to why I get this error message?
Many thanks
Kind regards
