Hello,

looks like there is an extra slash character in Starting URL, make sure that it's set to:
Code: [Select]
http://www.domain.comand not to:
Code: [Select]
http://www.domain.com\

Seemed to solve this problem but am now only getting top level being indexed and not the other pages.  Strange as when I tried the free online sitemap generator it managed to index max 500.  So what am I doing wrong here?

Hello,

I see you have a redirect on homepage, please try to change Starting URL to:
http://www.yourdomain.com/Home.aspx

Hi Oleg.  Thanks for responding to my cry for help.  I've added "/home.aspx" to my URL, and then saved and tried crawling again- but it didn't work. 

Two things:  our site, www.uscourts.gov, is hosted by Akamai's network of servers.  Thus our "www.uscourts.gov" name actually points to Akamai, which then points to our servers.  Thinking Akamai's network might be part of the problem, I used one of the Advanced Options to crawl an IP address instead, I put in "207.41.14.53" (which points to our box directly, not via Akamai), but I still get the error opening the socket.  Here is the hint for the field: Hint: SERVER[SERVER_ADDR] - , but I'm not sure what that hint means.  Here is what I put in that field:  http://207.41.14.53/home.aspx      Is this the correct format?

Lastly, if I can't get this to work, can we purchase your service to assist loading on the server?  I almost purchased when we bought the stand-alone package, but I see we can purchase the installation support at any time.  Is this something you can help me with after I purchase the support?

Thanks so much.

-Jack

Hello,

please try to specify "207.41.14.53" in that setting.
