#2456: ASIO localhost resolve
 Reporter: wellsureitis_at_[hidden] | Owner: chris_kohlhoff
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.37.0 | Component: asio
  Version: Boost 1.36.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: ASIO hostname resolve |
 When using BOOST ASIO

 "Exception: Host not found (authoritative)"

 I get this message when trying to connect to localhost,, or the
 actual local machine's hostname. This happens when the machine is not
 connected to a network of any kind. Connecting it to a wired or wireless
 network fixes the problem.

 I am running Ubuntu (kernel 2.6.24-21). I thought it might be a
 problem with Ubuntu - but I am able to ping localhost,, and the
 machine's own hostname while disconnected from networks.
