I have an application that is supposed to listen on server port 1968.  I can never connect to it, even from the server itself.  When I run a netstat, I don't even see port 1968 listed.  I'm a complete newbie at server ports and their functions - any ideas here?

Is the firewall on the server enabled?  If so, you need to create an exception in the firewall for port 1968.

Firewall is actually disabled.  I also checked to ensure there are no 3rd party firewalls.

If your application is running, and the firewall is disabled, make sure that it is running on the correct port.  Double check that it hasn't started on a different port.

Checked the config files - it's definitely mapping to port 1968.
In the logs, I'm getting the following error:
 No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

This feels like an OS problem.
