Network Exception

I've a problem, I'm using this code on GHC compiler version 6.4.1:

--- BEGIN ---
module Main where
import System.IO
import Network

main = withSocketsDo $ do
handle <- connectTo "localhost" ( PortNumber 8080 )
hSetBuffering handle LineBuffering
hClose handle
--- END ---

The problems is that it throws an exception at connectTo, the exception is:

getServiceEntry: does not exist (no such service entry)

The server and the port is correct, I have apache listening on port 8080 
and if I put http://localhost:8080/ on browser it loads a web page.

Do somebody knows what it happens and how to fix it? thanks.
