Hi everyone,

When I try to establish a TCP connection (using localhost as IP) as a client, I get the following exception:
(exception message: null)

The code that establishes the connection (and responsible for throwing the exception):

I am sure that my device supports SocketConnection (I've gotten it to work on an IP address in the local network), so the problem must be that I use localhost? I've tried substituting it for, omitting the arguments, changing the port (I've tried 13, 14, 9002, ..), but to no avail.

Any ideas?

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
