Hey guys!
im triyng to run these example codes for a simple connection using these libs, and these errors occurs:

codes:

#server

import SimpleXMLRPCServer
from datetime import datetime

server = SimpleXMLRPCServer.SimpleXMLRPCServer(("localhost", 8888))
server.register_instance(datetime)

server.serve_forever()
#client

import xmlrpclib

server = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy("http://localhost:8888")

print server.now()

en the errors:


Traceback (most recent call last):

please, can anyone help me??

Kind of sounds like dependency issues... but seeing as that module is built into Python I don't see how this could happen.

I tried importing those modules (which I've never used before) and they worked. Perhaps you need a reinstallation of Python.

Thx for your reply! =)

ok, i have no ideia the reason why..
but I just changed the place where these programs were...
i created another folder...
and now its working =)
