    This looks like a BASIS issue, however difficult to judge what is the root cause. There may be a lot of different reason like wrongly configured HTTP server or the host name is incorrect.

    I would recommend to contact with a BASIS Admin in your organization.

    Hi Preety,

    Well, lets see NIEHOST_UNKNOWN means Network Interface Error Host Unknown...

    That means that the hostname used cannot be resolved.... I would check that the hostname given is correct and available via DNS and or update the hosts file with the IP and hostname.

    Also after checking a few old threads seems like some people suggested that the protocol could be wrong, try with HTTPS instead.

    Regards, JP
