when i try to run this (see below) i get message: socket error: no connection could be made because the target maching actively refused it, and, idle subprocess didn't make connection.  either idle can't start a subprocess or personal firewall software is blocking the connection.
def mult(a, b):
    if b == 0:
        return 0
    rest = mult(a, b - 1)
    value = a + rest
    return value
print "3 * 2 = ", mult(3, 2)
i used idle window(gui) and new window and it works sometimes.  Help!?
