Thanks to Tom Crummey <> for the answer. this seems to
be known Solairs IP issue fixed in patch 112902-07.

I checked the readme file for the patch and sure enough the bug
description says:

Problem Description:

4749268 connect() to localhost fails when SO_DONTROUTE is set
4784039 connect() to `hostname` fails if SO_DONTROUTE is set
