I have set up an workflow on my laptop which download images and Links from am email in gmail and it works correctly. 

 

When i transfer the workflow to the Alteryx server i am getting the following errors

 

Error transferring data: Couldn't resolve host name - when i try to download the images

Error transferring data: Failure when receiving data from the peer - When I try to download the link

 

I can view these links in Internet explorer and it opens correctly.

There are quite a few things that can be happening here, could you elaborate a bit on your workflow please?
Include screenshots and perhaps an example link if possible so that I may try it on my server

The workflow will take all the image link and url links from an email in gmail, and download the link in order to see if the link is valid. It the link it working then it will give an ok message and if the link is not working then it will give an error 404 message. I just a bit confuse why this workflow was ok on my laptop but not on the Alteryx server.

Here are some screen shots of the workflow.

Can anyone help me on this as I would like to host this workflow onto the gallery for other people to use?

This is because the computer that has Server installed on it does not know about the URL you are using to pull data. This can be because the specific URL is being blocked by IT or simply that the server has been configured to only accept connections from sources internal to your organization. 

 

You can work with the Server admin and IT to either whitelist the URL you want to use or to add the IP address of the website you want to reach to the DNS lookup table of the network that the server is connected to.
