Greetings:
What I did was to edit my "hosts" file and include the following line:

******************************************************************************
# Sample /etc/hosts file (UNIX); C:\...\TRUMPET\HOSTS (MS-DOS):
#
127.0.0.1 localhost {PCname} {PCname.ISPs.domain}
******************************************************************************

the localhost IP number is a standard loopback IP number. The other names
are considered "aliases" for the default connection back to your machine! I
don't *really* know why this works, but it works for me!

Good luck...
