In some cases (can't quite figure out which) an attempt to connect to a server
(in windows) from a client (maxOS) gives this message (in the synopsis line).
I can't tell whether the message comes from the client or the server, and what it's doing or why?  Is this the server trying to look up the ip address of the client?  Why does it need that?  What call is it doing, what result is it getting, what results would be acceptable?

How to repeat:
only occurs from one place, but maybe not all the time

Suggested fix:
You tell me!
