The name should be something like "www.hassan.com", not just "hassan". You could also use the IP address.

Could it be that you have a space after address.getHostAddress and the "()"?
Here is what I've done before with DataGramSockets...

I dont' think you need to have the "address.getHostAddress" either because you've already got the address from InetAdress.
Also, is there anything running to accept connections on port 4444?
