The script can't resolve the server name. Try to do it by hand using
nslookup or even ping (you may want to add a few print statements inside
the script to see the exact host name it is trying to connect to, in case
it isn't what you expect)
If you can't resolve the host name using nslookup, there is a network
problem, not in your script. If you can resolve it, try your script
without py2exe if possible.
