Have you tried it from other machines? You didn't mention what version of
CU you are doing this from. I only have experience doing this from the
Cornell 1.0 version. I know it does work fine for that. Maybe check out
my reflector scanner
( and find a
reflector with a hostname and click the Go icon to connect. See what
happens. I know it works fine for the Cornell 1.0 version as I've used my
scanner's list often to connect to reflectors off of. I don't see how it
could be a 3.1.1 problem either as I know quite a few of the reflectors in
their phone book have hostnames instead of numerical IPs. If you're using
3.1.1, try exporting one as a csm/cu file (I forget which 3.1.1 uses) and
then double clicking on it.
