Check your resolver setup. pc126.psy.aau.dk does not resolve to an IP
address on your host. Test by:
% host pc126.psy.aau.dk
This works here, but most likely not on your computer.
Also, connecting to "localhost" or without --host-name will connect via
a unix domain socket, rather than via the network, which is faster.
