[K12OSN] Python Idle problem

When I set up the lab, I installed the latest version of python and 
extras for it that I could find.  the IDE program idle resides in the 
usr/bin folder.  I tested it on a variety of workstations and they all 
worked.  But I didn't try it on multiple machines at the same time.  
Today in class I did and it failed.  the first person to try got the 
idle screen, everyone else got an error message, I forget exactly the 
wording, but I can post it tomorrow, but it was something to the effect 
of the socket already being in use.

How would I get it to work on multiple machines?

Java NetBeans 3.6 ide works on multiple machines, but it resides in the 
opt/netbeans/bin directory.

does it work because  it is in the opt directory?  and does the Python 
IDE not work because of where it is located?  was there a network 
install that I missed?

Please help.  I can use python in the terminal window on multiple machines
