Well - this is a lookup problem. Your system does not know the name "localhost". You can easily fix this using a host file. A host file is something like a DNS-Lookup table. It assigns IPs to hostnames. The format is quite easy. My hosts-file looks like this:
You see: it contains only one entry which assigns the logical hostname "localhost" to your local loopback IP (the lines with # are treated as comments). If you use Win9x you will find your hosts file in the system folder. If you use NT/2000/XP you will find it in system32\drivers\etc. Edit the file and add the entry like shown above. After that everything will be fine... cheers Hartmut

My hosts-file is same as your hosts-file, no error. I believe my regedit keys had problems, but i don't know which key is wrong.
