Look at /etc/hosts

The line that is at the top is in IPv6 format?
If so, move it down so it appears below the line that says:		localhost

(I sent this a while ago but it did not appear to have actually been sent;

I think that will fix the problem.

I have sent this twice, but I never saw it post.
