I have stopped the iptables service, so there is no firewall running.
When I start the varnish service, say with port 9000, then the service will not launch, and thus the port is not bound.
I have tried now starting the varnish service with port 80, and setting the port to 9000 with varnishadm.
I get an error 300 "Could not open sockets" as shown below. Port 80 works fine though.
param.set listen_address :9000
Could not open sockets
param.set listen_address :80
My backends work fine. I can access them with Konqueror with any port number that I want.
Telnet also works fine.
I am stuck.
