OK, this is a *guess* - based on nothing more than an odd feeling -

When you [re]installed Erlang/OTP, did you choose to install Winsock 2?

If not - try it.

I was thinking about something else entirely when I suddenly got a
terrible feeling that installing C# might also install an 'innovative'
TCP/IP stack that Erlang doesn't like.  I know how cynical that sounds -
in fact I dearly hope it's NOT the case - BUT ... well, I'm paranoid :)
