Hello i need help in what i need to do to fix this. 

i tested the sitemap  provided in the admin cp and entered it on webmasters tool at google, so that    it crawls the urls again after i enabled the friendly urls  

this is the result google gives after testing the sitemap : 

what does it mean?

Hello @ZeroHour and  @fosters! it took a few days and then i retested it

and it worked- and no warnings came out, and i submitted it all good.(no warnings / errors)

but yesterday i saw that there are 31 warnings occuring, 

With ips opening them and giving the error 2F173/1

and when i go fetch as google, the links do not exist

(Cannot be fetched)
