I am running Python 2.4.1 on a HP Tru64 Unix system.

When try to carry out a DNS query as follows :

t = socket.getaddrinfo("",None)

I get the error message

socket.error: (41, 'Protocol wrong type for socket')

Am I right in thinking this is something to with the DNS lookup ?. Does
anyone have any idea what may be causing the problem ?.
