If you try running
srfsh.py and dnspython raises an exception concerning dns.resolver.NXDOMAIN you may need to use dnsmasq or the like to provide local DNS resolution for your hostname. This is quite likely to occur if it is
dnspython does not understand
/etc/hosts files. The dnsmasq option that worked for me (using
localhost as my hostname) was
-A/*/127.0.0.1 – your mileage may vary.
