Doesn't start: Cannot assign requested address

Post by blackberry318 » Fri May 08, 2020 3:24 am

Dynamic configuration initialized.. booting IRCd.
Error binding stream socket to IP 3.14.71.14 port 6900 - :Cannot assign requested address
Failed to bind to 3.14.71.14:6900
Error binding stream socket to IP 3.14.71.14 port 6697 - :Cannot assign requested address
Failed to bind to 3.14.71.14:6697
Error binding stream socket to IP 3.14.71.14 port 6667 - :Cannot assign requested address
Failed to bind to 3.14.71.14:6667
IRCd could not listen on any ports. If you see 'Address already in use' errors above then most likely the IRCd is already running (or something else is using the specified ports). If you are sure the IRCd is not running then verify your listen blocks, maybe you have to bind to a specific IP rather than "*".
=====================================================
UnrealIRCd failed to start. Check above for possible errors.
If you don't understand the problem, then have a look at our:

* Documentation: https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/
=====================================================

I am getting this error, the IP is correct and the fire wall is disabled.

maybe you started it already once? i mean can you just do a
$ ps -ef | grep unreal
and
$ netstat -anp | grep LISTEN | egrep "6900|6697"
and
$ ifconfig

and sahre the ouput? pastebin, or anything like that?
