Hello all,

When I try and start my tomcat  3.3.2 server I get this error: Invalid argument: listen failed

I have set my catalina home variable to my installation dir.

Am I missing something?

What is the port number you have provided in the server.xml file? It seems to be wrong.

Port 8080:

        <CoyoteConnector   port="8080"
               maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
               enableLookups="false"  acceptCount="100"
               debug="0" connectionTimeout="20000"
               disableUploadTimeout="true" />

Im using jdk1.5, could this be causing a problem?
