You configure a Host Initiated Processing (HIP) application to listen on multiple TCP/IP ports.
You start the HIP application.
In this scenario, the HIP application initializes and can accept incoming requests over the first TCP/IP port that you configured. However, the HIP application does not accept incoming requests over the other TCP/IP ports that you configured.
Additionally, messages that resemble the following are logged in the Application log when this problem occurs:
HISMTTW0023 The TCPTransport listener Listener_Name received an exception when attempting to listen on IPAddress TCP/IP_Address for port Port_Number. Exception description is : Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted.
HISMTTW0023 The TCPTransport listener Listener_Name received an exception when attempting to listen on IPAddress TCP/IP_Address for port Port_Number. Exception description is : The system detected an invalid pointer address in attempting to use a pointer argument in a call.
