Morrisey, that's one of the great advantages of POINC. You can create the game server with Python and Poinc, which works seamlessly with the Oinc Client extension. Just start the Poinc server, connect to it using your MMF2 application.
Take a look at the server example code, then run it via command prompt. Open MMF2, drag in the OINC extension and connect to the server (localhost might do it if you are running locally) and you'll hopefully find the MMF2 app connects nice and quickly.
