Happy to help.

Hmmm... sorry, my last dealings with a SCO OS were UnixWare, and that was 
years back, so I really couldn't say. What does ifconfig (or is it ifconfig 
-a) show you in the way of configured interfaces?

I've seen the same error message on a Linux box recently - though it has IPv6 
support (i.e. in libraries and so on) there were no IPv6 interfaces 
configured, so trying to bind to :: failed.

Regards, Philip.
