Just copied the hosts file to another machine, and that works fine.

It's definitely something wrong the laptop and one of the backup servers. Both
refuse to connect to databases on other machines and can't be connected to,
but they work fine locally, and are fine serving web pages. They WERE working
at one point, but it's been a while since I had PHP working as an interface,
so I don't know when the direct stuff went faulty. I've got things working by
borrowing Sheila's laptop, so I'm OK for tomorrow :)

I suppose now I need to wipe the machines and reinstall them :( Unless anybody
has an idea what I need to kick to fix things.
