[AG-TECH] AG 2.3 videoproducer problem on Debian

Hi Victor:

The problem you're having is entirely related to the hostname of the 
debian box.  The video producer service starts with a hostname of 
localhost.localdomain, and when the XP box resolves it, it finds itself.

If you fix that, it should work fine.
