I'm a real greenhorn trying to run the DailyAdviceServer with DailyAdviceClient in two separate command windows on my computer. I started the server just fine in one cmd window and tried to run the client in another but got:

C:\sue\java_work\networking_and_threads>java DailyAdviceClient
java.net.UnknownHostException: 127,0,0,1
at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.connect(Unknown Source)
at java.net.SocksSocketImpl.connect(Unknown Source)
at java.net.Socket.connect(Unknown Source)
at java.net.Socket.connect(Unknown Source)
at java.net.Socket.<init>(Unknown Source)
at java.net.Socket.<init>(Unknown Source)
at DailyAdviceClient.go(DailyAdviceClient.java:9)
at DailyAdviceClient.main(DailyAdviceClient.java:25)

Here's all the code (from Head First Java, 2nd Edition):






Thanks in advance for your help!

IPv4 addresses are usually represented in dot-decimal notation (four numbers, each ranging from 0 to 255, separated by dots, e.g. 208.77.188.166). Each part represents 8 bits of the address, and is therefore called an octet.

Thank you so much, Joe. I knew that's how IP addresses are formatted, but read the code
in the book wrong (need glasses) and didn't catch the inconsistency. I made the
change and my client is getting it's advice with no problem now!
