Running Apex Data Loader from Command Line


I was following the latest Data Loader Guide (https://help.salesforce.com/help/pdfs/en/salesforce_data_loader.pdf) and tried to run the Apex Data Loader from the command line in Windows. 

I'm getting the following exceptions on executing the final command: process.bat "C:\DLTest\Command Line\Config" accountInsert
java.net.UnknownHostException: login.salesforce.com
 com.sforce.ws.ConnectionException: Failed to send request to https://login.salesforce.com/services/Soap/u/30.0

After searching in google I found explanations related to proxy settings which I didn't understand. Kindly help me resolve this.

UnknownHostException is telling you that your computer cannot resolve the DNS name of "login.salesforce.com".  Can you ping that host from your command line?
