I tried to do a cap deploy yesterday when it suddenly didn't want to work anymore. It says "address family for hostname not supported". After a lot of searching and googling and source code lookup I came to the following: On my development machine @ work (Windows 2003) there is a problem with the low level Socket.getnameinfo() call. When I try to do a Socket.getnameinfo(['AF_INET', '22', 'beeplet.com']) I get the above exception. but a Socket.getnameinfo(['AF_INET', '23', 'beeplet.com']) it works like a charm. It doesn't have anything to do with what domain I use, it only happens when I use port 22 (ssh) in the method call. Everything worked fine 2 days ago and now, suddenly, it bails on me. Doing the above method call from my development machine @ home (Ubuntu) it all works just fine. I don't know how and why I get this exception and haven't been able to find a sollution either. Maybe somebody knows something more on this topic?
