Please do the following:
1) Run /sbin/ifconfig -a. Verify that ethernet (eth0) is at the top of the ifconfig results, and note the ip address.
2) Run cat /etc/hosts. Verify that there is a correct entry associated with the ip address. The ip address for the name of the appliance in /etc/hosts and the ip address reported by "/sbin/ifconfig -a" must match. Also confirm that there is no other entry with a different ip address for the same host name. If there is another entry before the correct one, the error will be produced because /etc/hosts is an "ordered file" (the first line that matches the hostname "wins"). In this case, edit /etc/hosts file as root and comment out any ip entries that do not match the correct address. Then reboot to clear up any leftover python processes.
