In the FAQ Section, under Server Questions, is "I get a

Winsock Error when I try and connect to a Server".

Winsock Error 11004 basically means, it can resolve the Address,

but it can not be reached.

Try a different server name, like or, or use a very

specific Undernet server, found in the Full Server List.
