The host your server is running on; presumably, your own, which is
'localhost', the default value.

/etc/hosts, I suppose.  That will work, too, if your network
is configured properly.

The default, 5555.

It looks like your network isn't configured properly.
They are difficult to solve without knowing more about your system.
Read the manual, or relevant HOWTOs/FAQs, to find out how to set it up,
if you are your system's own administrator.  The 'localhost' name, which
refers to the 'loopback interface', is supposed to work even on a
non-networked Unix system.
