Pan :: "No route to host" error

Has anyone ever come across this kind of error message using Pan, and if so, what was the problem and how did you work around it?

Mon, 02 May 2005 16:00:29 - NNTP handshake failed: Error reading from socket.

Is that "nntp.<<<isp>>>.com" something you changed to post it here or is that the address you're connecting to? You'll need to change that if it is, becasue that "No route to host" error message means that it can't find a URL www.<<<isp>>>.com which makes sense because that isn't a valid URL.

What happens when you ping the real address? What does it resolve to? Next, try a traceroute to the IP/domain and see where it fails.
