Probably there is a configuration problem - it looks like your server doesn't allow local network connections via port 80 (http) - as a result sitemap generator is not able to crawl the site. This is usually related to firewall installed at the host - could you please contact your hosting support regarding this?

Hi Oleg,

Thanks for the quick response, it is greatly appreciated. The hosting company got the IIS working properly again, but I now have the exact opposite problem. But first, let me give you some details. The website that the generator is installed on was converted from asp.net 2 to 4 and a newer version of the blog software ( blogengine.net 2.8 ) was installed. Someone had hacked the old contact page inside of the blog and sent out a bunch of spam before my hosting company shut down the e-mail address associated with it.

Through all of this, the generator didn't get touched. I figured it would start up and run with no reconfiguration needed. But the new blog is giving it a problem. I originally had the max depth level at 0 and it worked great. This is not the case with the new blog. The generator now creates hundreds of levels before it crashes. I have played around with the max depth level and have found 5 - 7 range works pretty well. Is there advise you can give me on how to get the best performance with the generator with this new blog?

Thank you again for all of the assistance,
Scott

Hello,

perhaps there is an endless loop of links that causing it work like that.
You can limit depth level to say 100, which is pretty high and would resolve the issue.

Hi Oleg,

The previous blog engine would only go 3 levels deep before completing. I've got it set to 4 levels deep and it is still adding more non-existing pages to the sitemap. Any ideas?

Most likely an endless loop somewhere, you can check the created sitemap for the links that look weird, like:
domain.com/page/page/page
