Verify DNS server settings

Therefore, your browser cannot connect to the page and cannot display it. Verify your DNS server settings with your network administrator or ISP, and make sure that the DNS servers are working correctly.

Note Your firewall program may be blocking your access to the Internet. Therefore, contact your Firewall program vendor to configure the settings correctly.
