Resolving Invalid Underscores are not allowed in Domains, also take a look at RFC 1738 (got from RFC 2384 to this RFC), there stands: 2.1. The main parts of URLs A full BNF description of the URL syntax is given in Section 5. In general, URLs are written as follows: <scheme>:<scheme-specific-part> [...] Scheme names consist of a sequence of characters. The lower case letters "a"--"z", digits, and the characters plus ("+"), period ("."), and hyphen ("-") are allowed. [...] 5. BNF for specific URL schemes [...] scheme = 1*[ lowalpha | digit | "+" | "-" | "." ] I would suggest that you change the (Domain-)Name of the Server or use the IP Adress of it.
