Our network administrator updated our DNS setting this morning and when I tried to launch Eclipse over X11 to my Mac I got the follow error:

_X11TransSocketINETConnect() can’t get address for localhost:6010: Name or service not known

Googled the error and tried a couple of things but what fixed it was a simple updated to the host machines /ete/hosts file. Add the follow if it is missing: localhost
::1 localhost

The reload sshd:

/etc/init.d/sshd reload
