URL with IP address

Does anybody have any idea why a juce::URL with an IP address instead of a String address would not work (connection fails with URL url(“http://1.2.3.4”) but not with url(“http://www.myaddress.com”) )? With other servers than my own, it works… it works in a browser too, so the server config seems right… ?

URL doesn’t check for all possible forms when parsing, of which there are way too many to list here.

I suggest giving URL::createWithoutParsing a shot.
