Hi, I'm trying to start the TOMCAT server in unix platform. I get the following exception. This is different from the usual "Address already is Use". I have tried to change the port number many a times but I get the same error. Also, i ahve checked netstat for ports they seem to be free... the exception is roperties StandardServer.await: create: java.net.BindException: Can't assign reques ted address java.net.BindException: Can't assign requested address at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.socketBind(Native Method) at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.bind(PlainSocketImpl.java:331) at java.net.ServerSocket.bind(ServerSocket.java:309) at java.net.ServerSocket.<init>(ServerSocket.java:183) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardServer.await(Unknown Source) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.start(Unknown Source) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.execute(Unknown Source) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.process(Unknown Source) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl. java:39) @ NOT SURE WHY IT CANT ASSIGN THE ADDRESS.. Any Thoughts, I appreciate. Thanks, Nandhini
