Thanks in advance,

About installation of swak4Foam
Hi everyone,
I am fresher to openFoam. I came to know the uses of swak4Foam utility for writing boundary conditions. In my application also i need to apply zero flux boundary condition. So i wish to install swak4Foam. Now i am working on OF 2.1.1 version.
I followed every step as mentioned in the tutorials but i am not able to get it. The error message as follows

Error message:-

malli_reddy@ubuntu:~/OpenFOAM/malli_reddy-2.1.1$ svn checkout https://openfoam-extend.svn.sourcefo...ies/swak4Foam/

svn: OPTIONS of 'https://openfoam-extend.svn.sourcefo...ries/swak4Foam': Could not resolve hostname `': No address associated with hostname (

Could you please suggest me how to overcome this problem. And suggest me some good tutorial for the swak4Foam.
