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.
