AMC Stopped Working Suddenly / java.net.UnknownHostException: api.filebot.net

Post by JRad » 16 Nov 2018, 09:09

Hi,

My AMC script appears to have stopped working suddenly in qBittorrent. I have tested a simplified version and it returns the following:

Code: Select all

C:\Users\Media>filebot -script fn:amc --output "D:\" --action test -non-strict "E:\Torrents\Completed\Chicago.Fire.S07E08.720p.HDTV.x264-AVS" --log-file amc.log --def excludeList=amc.txt

Failure (°_°)
I read on a similar topic that the DNS may be the issue but i've changed/flushed it a few times now.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Yes, the core issue is indeed that FileBot cannot connect to api.filebot.net because it doesn't know the IP:

Code: Select all

java.net.UnknownHostException: api.filebot.net

:arrow: Not much we can do here. If it stopped working suddenly, then it might just start working again suddenly if you try again tomorrow.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.

I probably should have clicked to this earlier but the computer runs behind a VPN. It's been working fine for months, but once disabled, I could access api.filebot.net again so I changed the server the VPN uses and it's all working now.

Thanks for your help!
