that's not a Python error, so that won't help.

check your proxy configuration.  most likely, your new machine is set up 
to route all requests via a remote proxy.

(on windows, you'll find the proxy configuration under "Internet 
Options" - "Connections" - "LAN Settings".  before you do anything else, 
make sure "Bypass proxy server for local addresses" is checked)
