    Have you gotten this resolved yet? I noticed that you had posted in another thread and wanted to insure you got an answer.

    No I have not gotten this resolved yet. But, we are working on it.

    This thread is an error though. I started a thread here DNS error during install
    Maybe because it was one of my first posts and had a link to another page. It got flagged as spam and had to be approved by a moderator. After it was approved, phoenix replied and pointed out an error. I corrected error and edited my first post. Again it was flagged as spam. It seems like it was approved again but created another thread.

    Long story short. This thread is a repeat of another and could/should be removed.
