11.5 ISE Design Suite XilinxUpdate - Could not resolve proxy name


While running XilinxUpdate, I receive the following error: 

"Couldn't resolve proxy name." 

I do not have any firewall or authentication. What else should I check?


This error occurs whenever Web XilinxUpdate is unable to connect to www.xilinx.com. 

Make sure that you are connected to the Internet, you are able to manually connect to www.xilinx.com, and that there are no problems with network security features preventing XilinxUpdate from obtaining the appropriate data. 

If you are not able to use Web XilinxUpdate, the Single File Service Packs are available at http://www.xilinx.com/support/download/index.htm
