"invalid host address" suggests it's failing on a hostNameToAddress call, which suggests DNS problems. But if other net applications are working, it sounds strange. I don't have 2.9.1 on XP here, but 3.0 works OK. Can you test the following, but try with some different host names.

on mouseUp
 put hostNameToAddress("www.runrev.com")
 if the result is not empty then answer the result
end mouseUp

on mouseUp
 put hostNameToAddress("google.com")
 if the result is not empty then answer the result
end mouseUp

etc.
