    Hi to all i am constantly receiving this error message, i tried very hard to overcome this problem. Can any one provide any clue how to resolve this. I am getting this error message as soon as i tried to access RSS feed from my application. I am using following code to get it done.

    public DataSet DS(string strURL)
                XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader(strURL);
                DataSet ds = new DataSet();
                    ds.ReadXml(reader); // exception is generates here      
                catch(Exception ex)
                return ds;

    Hi Kumar,

    Iam not sure abt the prob. The reason might be the following....

    If u are in India and ur mobile is Free-GPRS activated - mobile carriers (Airtel, Hutch etc..) wont permit u to access sites other than their own sites (airtellive.com or hutchworld.com etc...). To access other websites from these carriers we need to get PAID-GPRS connection which allows u to access any web site. For this u have to get the browser settings from the carrier (customer care wil send u the settings if requested). For complete info call the customer care whether they permit u to access ur specified URL.

    To confirm this chk the page from the desktop browser. Its always better to mention complete details like, target browser or simulator etc.... while posting.......
