I am importing a wsdl file using the web service wizard for connectivity to an external soap web service.

I am getting the following error messages:

This looks like there is a connectivity issue to the internet, but the internet connectivity seems fine on the PC I am using. Also I have been able to import a different wsdl which points to a public soap service which imports fine and also uses the same xml schema file available on the internet at I have attached the log file and wsdl file which is causing us the problem.
