This is almost certainly a name service lookup problem. I don't see a
properties file anyware in your command line so unless you modified
ListFiles.java I'd say you need to set WINS or tweak DNS to be more
forgiving about using unqualified hostnames. See our website. I think
there's an entire page about setting name service properties.
