Solution

This means you need to reboot...


Detailed Explanation

This error is caused by the DCgate client being unable to receive the server config information from config.dcgate.net (or oc.config.dcgate.net)

This is most commonly caused by the user connecting to VPN and then disconnecting and trying to use DCgate-OC

When you do this, DCgate-OC attempts to query Purdue's DNS server for the TXT record for "oc.config.dcgate.net"

Since you are not on VPN and therefore not on Purdue's internal network, the DNS server will not give you an answer, thus causing the DCgate-OC client to fail to connect.

Therefore you must do the reboot...


For thoes who "think" they know what they are talking about

No you cannot simply do a "ipconfig /flushdns" as it is not realated to the cache but rather the "dnspython" libraries.
