Hey guys,
I'm trying to test my application on as many platforms as I can, and when I start the server on a linux platform I get a SocketException: Connection reset by peer:. This only happens on linux not windows, anyone have an idea of what is causing this? I dropped the firewall on my linux box and still recieve the error.
Thanks in advance...

Just a guess: check if the port you use is allready in use with
netstat -an | grep LISTEN | sort
