It's most likely timing out trying to resolve your address to a valid
host name. I'd try putting an entry in the hosts file in c:\windows that
contains: "localhost" .. also enable the 'nameserver is
slow' function in config.c .. that seems to help for me.

As far as code portability, I've had great success developing with 95
and using the same source on Linux.. Saves me hours upon hours of time.
