Running java 1.4.2 on OpenVMS 7.3-2

How to resolve the following error?

Running java 1.4.2 on OpenVMS 7.3-2 and we get the following error:
"Could not listen on port: xxxx."
"Caught IOException: java.net.SocketException: function not implemented"

The error seems to be from the following statement:  ServerSocket = new ServerSocket(xxxx);

Where xxxx is some port number.

You should probably take the exception message at face value. Try using the empty ctor followed by

OliviaRedHorse,

We should start with the basics:
- What UIC and what privileges does your account have (enabled and authorized)?
- Are you the system manager?
- Precisely what port are you attempting to open?
- Which TCP/IP package is your system running?
