    [Errno -2] Name or service not known (setoolkit)

    Hi, I have Kali 2.0 64-bit on VMware Workstation Player and Windows 10 Host. I am having problems cloning a site with setoolkit. After going through the options, I get to the site cloner (#2) and after entering 2 and pressing enter, I get the error:
    [!] Something went wrong, printing the error: [Errno -2] Name or service not known

    When I start setoolkit, I get this:
    Process Process-3:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/multiprocessing/process.py", line 258, in _bootstrap
    self.run()

    self.timeout, self.source_address)
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/socket.py", line 557, in create_connection
    for res in getaddrinfo(host, port, 0, SOCK_STREAM):
    IOError: [Errno socket error] [Errno -2] Name or service not known

    Does anyone know how to fix this so I can clone a site? I think I've done it before but on a different Kali installation. I've tried updating setoolkit (#4) but it gives the same error. Please reply with help. Thanks

    Nevermind, I got it working. I clicked on "Network" in Settings and it said "Network Manager not running." I ran "service network-manager restart" and now it connects to the Internet and Site Cloner works. Super happy!
