looks like a DNS issue... are you able to ping the address youre connecting to? does it resolve to an IP

Are you connecting to a Connection Server or a Security Server? Are you accessing it on its internal address or are you trying remotely via the internet?

OK so typically you would have a security server in your DMZ which passes through connections to your connection server. If this is a production enviroment you should look at doing that
