are you runnign windows? linux? is it possible that there is a server already set up on the port you are trying to bind to? this is quite possible. Alternatively 3.1 used to have a problem with jdk 1.1 because of an assumptions it made about class loaders which required a slight rewrite to the code base. A socket bind problem probably means you are on linux and you are trying to bind to a port that is either a) < 1024 and you havent got su rights or b) you have a server on that port already

I have WinMe. I recently downloaded Tomcat 5. It was written that it would run as a WinNT/Win2K/WinXP service whatever may be the installation.
I ran tomcat.exe but nothing happened. The DOS window just opened & closed. I ran in DOS mode it gave no error. It wasn't running in the background(I checked ctrl+alt+del).
Anyone know how to get jsp scripts to work on Me ?

We do have a Tomcat forum to take care of these specific questions.
If you browse the last few weeks of questions in that forum you may well find the answers to your problems.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
