I'd suggest checking for other processes listening in that port range
(ie "netstat -an", particularly port 4243 as shown in the error, but
the tests can use other ports in that range).  I've had a similar
problem long ago when some antivirus product was using a port in the
range the tests wanted to use.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
