Hello,

According to http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15638214/socket-error-invalid-argument-supplied, the client socket doesn't have an address at time
when you call s.getsocketname.  This raises an exception on Windows.

Removing the 'Address before sending' line will prevent the error.

As you're using Python3, you'll find that passing strings to s.sendto raises
a TypeError; you'll need to encode the strings as bytes.

Hope that helps,

Kev
