Breakpointer socket errors?

I’m not sure what has changed that could have caused this, but lately,
I’m unable to run the script/breakpointer script with my application.
The application is just loaded up as webrick like:

=> Booting WEBrick…
=> Rails application started on
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server; call with --help for options
[2006-03-20 12:42:48] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1

[2006-03-20 12:42:48] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=5864

And running script/breakpointer:

/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/drb/drb.rb:837:in getaddrinfo': getaddrinfo: Name or service not known (SocketError) from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/drb/drb.rb:837:inopen_server_inaddr_any’

from script/breakpointer:3

Any clues where to start looking for what is wrong? I get a connection
refused trying to just telnet to the 42531 port on localhost.

=> Rails application started on you may like to check your /etc/hosts if on a *nix. Things tend
to go better with the followings in it…

[[email protected]]$ cat /etc/hosts

Do not remove the following line, or various programs

that require network functionality will fail. localhost.localdomain localhost

IIRC tells the server to listen on all interfaces.

It doesn’t mean that you point your browser at - you still use
localhost,, or the real IP address of the machine in your URL.
