Pardon my newbness, I only just found this site today and I have been having this problem for a bit.
I am using Python 2.5.2 that I recieved from a CD from my college. My OS is Windows XP, and my internet provider is Internet Explorer.
When I first downloaded and tried to open the IDLE, I was asked - outside of the window as an alert - if I wanted to grant it access to the internet. Not being sure, I denied it. When I try to run a prorgam - or even when I try to open Shell, it gives me an error stating that it "can't bind TCP/IP port 8833" etc, etc.
Is this problem originating from me denying it access, or something else? And what do I do to fix this?
