[New-bugs-announce] [issue5065] IDLE improve Subprocess Startup Error message

Steven D'Aprano report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Steven D'Aprano <steve at pearwood.info>:

When launching IDLE, it reports:

"IDLE's subprocess didn't make connection. Either IDLE can't start a 
subprocess or personal firewall software is blocking the connection."

This should report what needs to be opened on the firewall to allow 
the connection, e.g. "Allow UDP/TCP connections to on ports 
FOO and BAR and try again".
