URL of problem
Summary0002106: Resolving timed out after 30000 milliseconds
DescriptionURLs are never resolved, the process always times out in 30secs.
Steps To ReproduceTry to fetch any URL.
Additional InformationThis is specific to NetSurf on the Mac version of VRPC, there is no such problem with VRPC on Windows 7.

The problem has been present since the current ci build system was adopted. NetSurf 2.9 is fine on the Mac VRPC. This was first reported on the NetSurf mailing list in September 2012, as I recall the response at the time was that none of the developers had VRPC on a Mac.
TagsNo tags attached.

seems curl/libcares never gets a response

relevant bit of log is:

further given its a timeout error not a resolver error.

Almost certainly because we upgraded libcurl when we moved to CI and nothing to do with where the builds were performed.

Networking is a bit broken on the Mac version of VRPC. Apparently it works on the Windows version. It also works on real hardware.

Could this be tried with a current CI build. We recently introduced builds which use an updated SDK which has fixes for other networking problems.

This *might* be resolved by these updates.

Sadly, no such luck with #3222. See log iMac3222. Thanks for trying.

David Pitt reports that this case is still valid with MacOS High Sierra and NS 4214.
