The GetHostByName() error is a common one. Read the help file on this
subject for information on how to fix this. If you don't have an IP address
in the "Name Server" field in Trumpet, this can also cause this problem. If
you DO have an IP address there, make sure that your ISP supports what is
called "reverse DNS". This is a method by which a name is looked up to get
the IP address.
