I am trying to access data from web and as a learning wrote following code into SAS EG:
filename seercode URL "https://www.google.com";
infile seercode truncover;
input @1 bigline $char256.;
Unfortunately, encountered following error, can anyone please suggest best way to resolve this issue:
NOTE: Unable to connect to host www.google.com. Check validity of host name.
ERROR: Hostname www.google.com not found.
NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors.
WARNING: The data set WORK.SITERECODE may be incomplete. When this step was stopped there were 0
observations and 1 variables.
WARNING: Data set WORK.SITERECODE was not replaced because this step was stopped.

Your code works for me with SAS installed locally on my laptop. Could it be that your SAS server where your code gets executed doesn't have Internet access?

You might need a PROXY definition on the FILENAME statement.
I would also use the DEBUG option on the FILENAME statement, this might give you more information as well
