# Problem resolving url

 Sci Advisor P: 3,372 I encountered a strange problem resolving the url of a repository. I am running opensuse 12.1 and firefox. The repository of opensuse I want to browse is http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...oolchain:/avr/ however I am told that it does not exist. When I surf to http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...rossToolchain: avr is shown but I also get a link does not exist when I click on it. However it works from another computer (windows). Any ideas?
 Sci Advisor PF Gold P: 1,355 Try: Flush the DNS cache on the ubuntu box & windows. Somebody is out of sync. Is the DNS server local? sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean restart windoze: from cmd.exe window -- ipconfig /flushdns Do you get a 404 error? Usually the system will tell you it cannot connect to the site. Meaning it does resolve but the physical server is not responding.
 Sci Advisor P: 3,372 Thank you very much for your answer, Jim! I tried out a couple of things in the meanwhile, including restarting both the router and the computer. First, the url is correctly resolved when starting the computer under windows. Under opensuse, when I click on "/avr" on the page http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...rossToolchain: then a new page opens: http://www.crosstoolchain.com/avr/ That is also the page where I get with: http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...oolchain:/avr/ So some script seems to misinterpret the ":" as the beginning of a new url. I can't find dns-clean under /etc/init.d. Edit: Just found out that the url is correctly resolved when I replace the ":" with "%3a"
