    Angry Address is invalid on local machine [on windows 8 only]

    I am getting error on windows 8 (64bit), its working fine on windows7
    java.net.ConnectException: connect: Address is invalid on local machine or port is not valid on remote machine

    using the java code
    public static boolean linkExists(String URLName){
            URLName = "http://www.google.com";
            try {
              HttpURLConnection.setFollowRedirects(false);
              HttpURLConnection con =
                 (HttpURLConnection) new URL(URLName).openConnection();
              con.connect();
              System.out.println(con.getResponseCode());
              return (con.getResponseCode() == HttpURLConnection.HTTP_OK);
            }
            catch (Exception e) {           
               return false;
            }
      }

    Does the code work if you put it in a small program and execute it from the commandline?

    I can't believe the stack trace in the error message would be the same.

    You'll have to wait until someone with Windows 8 comes along.

    Ok found another thing I am getting the invalid address if trying to run the code with this command
    [CODE]java -jar JavaApplication1.jar[CODE]

    but its working perfectly if I am runing the code with command
    [CODE]java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -jar JavaApplication1.jar[CODE]

    is there anyway I can set the -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true parameter globally??

    Where does the commandline with the java command etc come from?
    Can you modify that commandline to include that option?

    For example on Windows7 and XP I can change the registry entry.

    What you posted was paths to folders.
    What I am talking about is the commandline used to execute a java program. This is an example of a commandline:
    java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -jar JavaApplication1.jar

    How do you execute java programs?

    I created a mini program using netbeans, its saving the .jar file of the application in /dist folder. I am running that jar file using command line
    .../JavaApplication1/dist> java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -jar JavaApplication1.jar

    I thought you were having a problem executing java programs. Why do you need a global setting if you are using a commandline with the needed option?
