First of all : HELLO. This is my first post (and I hope is not going to be deleted) and before I post my problem I must say that I'M A NOOB in testing (and pretty much everything else related). I took some time to read the important guidelines of thand I don't know if I'm eligible to post here because of the following : I don't have LoadRunner with license (it's just a demo, no cracks or anything else - just a trial), I don't know how to answer the 10 questions (that should be answered in every NOOB post in order to get a proper answer). BUT I'm new to testing, I want to learn, I don't have anyone in my company to help me and I come here. So It's up to you if I get banned or I get an answer. Either way THANK YOU!
My problems is like this:
I started with a simple script in LR. A web_url function that is supposed to open the google site. If I start a new script and write the code I get an error : "Failed to connect to server www.google.com:80" (Where is this port 80 coming from?), if I make a simple record and I let the LR to make the script it works perfectly. I tried something else: I recorded opening www.google.com I erased all the script LR generated and I copied my script on that file. IT WORKS!
Any help would be usefull.
Sorry for my "problem", I guess many will laugh but I'm just starting out.
THANK YOU! Have a nice day!

Welcome Florin. No one is going to ban you or laugh at you. We take the product seriously and share a great appreciation for LoadRunner. We also know that it is near impossible to interactively train someone here. We also do not interfere with the EVAL process as that is between you and Hewlett-Packard.
Here are some recommendations:
1. Install the sample Flight Tours application and web server.
2. Follow the tutorial.
3. Practice and practice.
4. Indicate to your employer that training is essential.
