Title
Error: "The server name or address could not be resolved". XFile applications may fail after installing Microsoft Security Update for Internet Explorer 6 (KB832894)
Problem

After applying the following Microsoft Security Update on a client machines:

    Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 6 (KB832894)
    Security Bulletin MS04-004
    Filename: Q832894.exe
    Date Published: 2/2/2004

Existing XFile applications that use the Object and ServerName properties of the XFRequest object may fail, returning the error:
   

The server name or address could not be resolved.

Solution

We are not yet certain of the precise cause of this behavior, but it is currently being researched. It has been discovered though, that the applications that fail are using the Object and ServerName properties of the XFRequest object to specify the URL to which an upload should be posted.


SAXFile.UseSSL = False
SAXFile.Server = "MyServerName"
SAXFile.ObjectName = "/SAXFileSamples/formresp.asp"
SAXFile.AddFile "C:\boot.ini", "File1"
SAXFile.Start

The current workaround for correcting this behavior is to use the CurrentURL property of the XFRequest object to specify the URL to which the upload should be posted.


SAXFile.CurrentURL = "http://MyServerName/SAXFileSamples/formresp.asp"
SAXFile.AddFile "C:\boot.ini", "File1"
SAXFile.Start
