Hello,
I just installed Python 2.4.3 and tried to run IDLE, the Python GUI editor. My firewall (ZoneAlarm, up-to-date) of course asked if I wanted to allow it access the internet. I gave the process, pythonw.exe, full access permissions, but still when I run IDLE I get 2 errors saying:

"Socket Error: Connection refused" and
"IDLE's subprocess didn't make connection. Either IDLE can't start a subprocess or personal firewall software is blocking the internet"

However, when I check the logs of ZoneAlarm, everything's alright! It says that it has granted access to pythonw.exe.

Where is the problem??
