The name should be something like "www.hassan.com", not just "hassan". You could also use the IP address.

Could it be that you have a space after address.getHostAddress and the "()"?
Here is what I've done before with DataGramSockets...

I dont' think you need to have the "address.getHostAddress" either because you've already got the address from InetAdress.
Also, is there anything running to accept connections on port 4444?

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
