Hi

I have a working python app that consumers SOAP services on a 32bit
platform. I've packaged it with cx_freeze and executed it on a 64bit
plaform. If I use the IP address as the hostname I have no problem, it
works as expected. However if I use a DNS name, which I can resolve
manuallty i.e. nslookup I get the following error.  The underlying
code uses httplib.

<class 'socket.gaierror'>, gaierror(-2, 'Name or service not known')

Has anyone had a similar experience?

M
