See thread: FoamX: Problem wit
See thread: FoamX: Problem with FoamX

These problems are always one of the following:
- the hostname is not set ('localhost' is not acceptable to Corba)
- the hostname is not (or twice) in /etc/hosts
- only the truncated name is present in /etc/hosts
- some port opening problem due to security
