Error when accessing URL

When I try and retreive word frequency from a webpage sometimes I receive an error message that says "Could not access URL. Cannot retrieve data from the specified URL ....."  This only happens to certain webpages.  Any advice on how to make that stop and access those pages?

    Are you connecting to a RapidMiner Server or some 3rd party website?

    This can have a lot of different reasons and most of them are out of our control :-(


    However, in situations like this it might be useful to set up an exception handling so that at least the overall process can continue for the rest of the data.  The following discussion might be helpful for this: http://community.rapidminer.com/t5/RapidMiner-Studio/Read-Document-Error-amp-Skipping-Over-Errors/m-p/35252


    Hope this helps,
