fsockopen fails in php script....?

I am calling an IIS XP server from a .php script located on a different server. When I try to open a post page from PHP, I get the following error:

Warning: fsockopen(): php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known in /home/mylocal/test.php on line 9

The URL i am trying to open is an IP address of my IIS server using a cable modem. This may be a permissions problem but I cant identify if it is or not. I know that the IP for my IIS is correct, it's just that the php statement cant find it. Here is the code:

<?php
$host = 'http://111.222.333.444';
$port = 80;
$timeout = 10;
$uri = '/test.asp';
       
$postData = "product_name=product1";
$length = strlen($postData);
$socket = fsockopen($host, $port, $errno, $errstr, $timeout);
if(!$socket) {
         echo '$errstr ($errno)<br>\n';
}
else
{
  // do something
}

If anyone wants the actual addresses to help me, let me know. I will email it.

hi,

http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=11058

this page has some comments that you might want to read.. i can't suggest anything aside from this myself, other than changing the line $socket = fsockopen($host, $port, $errno, $errstr, $timeout); to $socket = @fsockopen($host, $port, $errno, $errstr, $timeout); since the error report might be more detailed echoing out the $errstr

cheers,

loz

Thanks. I assume this may in fact be an IIS issue rather than PHP bug.
