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)
