Regarding error unable to resolve host address while using wget
 
I am getting the below error:

linux-nv2m:~ # wget http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/atta...1&d=1159874953
--2009-01-15 17:41:17-- http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/atta...chmentid=20801
Resolving snowy1.wipro.com... failed: Temporary failure in name resolution.
wget: unable to resolve host address `snowy1.wipro.com'
[1] 3465
[1]+ Exit 1 wget http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/atta...chmentid=20801

Could any one help me in this regard?

There is really problem with snow1.wipro.com, according to both 'wget' and 'host' commands on my system.

That is odd, why is it even trying to contact wipro.com..

does curl give you the same result ?

Code:

curl http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=20801&d=1159874953
