The server where you installed the remote probe does not establish communication with the Server Core, which has an IP address obtained through Dyndns "solutiongate.dyndns-server.com. Firewall ports are enabled and NAT is configured, but the connection is not established, what can I do? I'm trying to send the log of the Remote Probe to your site.

The Windows Socket Errors are documented here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms740668(v=vs.85).aspx

Your error code, 11004 stands for:


WSANO_DATA

Valid name, no data record of requested type.

The requested name is valid and was found in the database, but it does not have the correct associated data being resolved for. The usual example for this is a host name-to-address translation attempt (using gethostbyname or WSAAsyncGetHostByName) which uses the DNS (Domain Name Server). An MX record is returned but no A record—indicating the host itself exists, but is not directly reachable.


It looks like the dns name for the core server that you entered in the remote probe is not valid.
