Hi all,

I've copied the example of RPC usage from the Python's doc.
When the client and server were on the same PC ("localhost") (I use
it worked ok. But putting the server on a different PC raised the

gaierror: (11001, 'getaddrinfo failed')
The error was raised upion accessing some function of the server,
print s.add_nums(1, 2, 3)  # server registered function

PCs in our organization are accessed by "\\<name>" so I used

s = xmlrpclib.Server(r'http://\\pc_name:8000')
I got the same error when I put some non-existing name.
Trying to remove the double-backslash from the PC's name raised the
error: (10061, 'Connection refused')

I'll appreciate your help on this.
