[Haskell-cafe] "getServiceEntry: does not exist" on Windows

I have a silly Windows issue:

*** Exception: getServiceEntry: does not exist (no such service entry)

I connect thusly and don't see myself using any services. I also do  
not have this issue on Mac OSX. Any ideas? I googled for this issue  
but don't even know if there's a protocols file on Windows, much less  
where it is and why "tcp" might not be there :-).

connect :: HostName -> Int -> IO Handle
connect h p = connectTo h $ PortNumber $ fromIntegral p

main = withSocketsDo $ do
     connect "" 15667

     Thanks, Joel
