Hi, The 'Unknown Host' error is usually indicative of Burp not being able to resolve the domain name into an IP address. Just to confirm, are you receiving this type of error for all of the websites that you try and proxy through Burp or just certain ones? I assume that you can access https://portswigger.net in a browser (on the machine on which Burp is installed) that is not proxying its traffic through Burp? If so, do you use a corporate proxy in your environment in order to make connections out to the internet (or is there anything else unusual about the network connection that you are using)?

Hi, Is there anything unusual about your network connection? Do you use a proxy or a VPN or anything of that nature? Do you see this error when you use both the embedded browser and an external browser with Burp?
