I have Ugrib for almost 7 years on my computer and always work great. Since a couple of weeks I can't get the .grib files anymore. The software gives the following message: "The server could not be contacted. Please check your connection. The error code was: NameResolutionFailure.

The error refers to the fact that the server where the files are stored is not accessible anymore. This issue could be caused by a few factors like:

  1. The server is in maintenance and you should come back later.

  2. Your Firewall is preventing Ugrib to download the files, therefore add it to the exclusion list.

  3. The software is discontinued and the servers as well.
