in thread UDP socket: Operation not supported

Thx: worked a treat on my RH FC3, but tgt is FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE-p2, which came up with:
Can't make server listen socket : IO::Socket::INET: Can't assign requested address
any ideas?

    This doesn't have anything to do with the operating system. It means you are trying to bind to a local IP address that isn't found on any interface on the host. Did you change the

    LocalAddr => 'a.b.c.d'
    argument to an appropriate local address on the FreeBSD box, or are you trying to bind to the address on the RH box? Do you really care which address you bind to locally? You could just leave this argument out to bind to '*' - that would make life easier...
