Did you point the resolver at a local DNS server? There's a line
in 'start_medusa.py' that looks like this:

rs = resolver.caching_resolver ('')

It assumes there's a name server running on the local machine, but if
there's not you should put the IP address of your local DNS server
in there instead.

Alternatively you could probably do this:

rs = None

Which would tell the HTTP server not to try to resolve addresses at
