There are so many things that may be wrong i couldn't begin
to start.  Perhaps one of your faculty advisors or an
undergrad could help you.  They would have some idea what
the script is supposed to do and what might be
wrong with your machine, the network or the server

I'm sorry to see your university's computing "masters"
programs are compairable with too many here in the US.  I do
wonder what a "master of computer applications" is supposed
to be capable of if he cannot even debug simple scripts and
netorking.  Perhaps getting it to work is part of the
exercise.  You might consider this a wake-up call.
