Another simple solution to this one could be the addition of the of the domain name to an ip address within in your own local hosts file.
This will make it possible so that you computer doesn't have to go out to the internet to resolve local hosts.
The file is /etc/hosts
For windows 2000/xp its in C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
i think its in c:\windows\hosts for 95/98
