The "port" and "address" daemon-config items were added in 2.6.4.
Before that they were just command-line options.  Your daemon's logfile
should have a complaint about the port directive not being understood.

That should mean that 4 others are connected already.  Look on the
server to see if any daemon processes are still running (in addition
