No route to host means that the machine the client is started on can't
reach the IP address, that is, either the local routing is not setup
correctly or your default gateway doesn't know how to reach vizws05.
What is strange is that you can trace the IP. I assume that they are
both in the same subnet, so you should see a route for this subnet on
If you don't find it, can you send the output of 'netstat -rn' and
'arp -an' for both machines, after you've ping'ed the remote machine.

You should use a different listening port for the client (--eq-
listen :<port), if you start the server and the client on the same
