Configuring such an IP address as the destination is a bad thing (tm).
Should, for some reason, your IP address change and your stuff will not
work anymore. You can use '', which is the loopback, and that
always works even if you do not have any physical network adapter.

Aha, it seems he tries to resolve the host name '', which
is already resolved. What if you use 'localhost' instead of

localhost's ip is, so it may (or may not) solve your issue.
