Hi Fred,

this message says that our service can't resolve "louapp38" to an IP address. "louapp38" is a local hostname that can't be resolved from outside of your network. Your application must run on a public host that is accessible on the Internet.

Thanks for reply.

I kind of guessed this, but was hopping there would be a work around it. This is an internal and secured web server and cannot be public.

Any other options that I can employ to fulfill my need?

Thanks again,

Hi Fred,

there are these two options:

1/ You can make your local host public. The idea is described in this post. There is a couple of services offering such functionality.

2/ Instead of passing a URL to the API you can upload your HTML code with the convertHtml() function.
