(Alex - you already solved this for me via email so no need for you to respond here. I am just writing a quick synopsis here in case other people encounter a similar problem)

My problem was that after installing RMA for Linux , RMA would not start:

/usr/sbin/rma/rma -i -v /usr/sbin/rma/rma.ini

Result was:

RMA encyption checking .. Ok
Sock testing .. TCP listen error:
socket() or bind() error



I initially thought this indicated that the default TCP port (1055) was already in use on the box. But I tried several different ports - none worked.

Alex then wrote:

How many network interfaces installed on this system?
Are you sure you have specified correct IP address as Host parameter?
=====================
; Optional parameter. Can be useul when system has several network interfaces.

Host=72.32.215.114

=====================
Could you try to remove it, keep default "Host=" line?


My system did have multiple NICs. Once I remove the IP address from my RMA.INI file as Alex suggested, my RMA works fine:
