    Temporary failure in name resolution.


    Evening guys

    Im a bit of a newbie to linux so If I don't give you all the info then my apologies. I have a SuSE 9.1 dedicated server running and it seems to have encountered a problem quite a few weeks back. Our technical guy has left the country so I am kind of stuck.

    I am trying to download files to a certain directory via SSH.

    I use the command wget http://www.steampowered.com/download/hldsupdatetool.bin.

    It hangs for around 1 minute or so and then I get the error message Resolving www.steampowered.com... failed: Temporary failure in name resolution.

    Is there anything that I should change on the box that will allow this at all ?

    I also have webmin access

    Thank you Loki

    A very simple trick but it might work - get the IP address of www.steampowered.com and substitute the domain name with the IP address.
