Bind failed. Error Code : -2 Message Name or service not known

I’m trying to use a Python script from Git.

Its purpose is to respond to monitoring packets sent from PRTG Network Monitor.

So I downloaded it and chmoded it and executed it (-d) on the client’s Debian system:

Linux xxxxxxxxx 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.54-2 x86_64 GNU/Linux

And obtained the following error:

Bind failed.

Error Code : -2 Message Name or service not known

The error apparently appears when the bind action attempts to bind port 50000 to all devices.

Is this a Debian, or system issue or a permissions issue?
