Hi, Ok, the warning is a warning and can safely be ignored since this debugging code.
It looks like your constant doesn't have a port number so questiuons you need to find out about: Is it trying to connect on the proper port by default? (My guess is no) Or does the define need to be changed to set the proper port number? (My guess is probably) Or is the host you're trying to connect to unreachable? Or is the port being blocked by a firewall? Once you get the connection working you can remove the echo.
