This has nothing to do with that particular problem, but there's another one lurking: Don't println to a Socket

Right. You're trying to connect to a computer named "taranis" but there's no such computer in your network. Talk to the person who manages your network and ask them to explain to you the basics of how computer networks work.

If you don't have a network, how do you propose to connect to another computer?

You seem to have literally copied that example and did not even read what those lines of code are meant for. There's an explanation about the code on that page. It even tells what the first param "taranis" is. Have you read that?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
