hej,
so i tried to run the epmd directly:
* on standard port 4369 it fails
* on other port e.g. 4368 it works

-----------------------------------------------------------------
C:\Program Files\erl5.6\erts-5.6\bin>epmd -port 4369
epmd: Mon Feb 04 20:58:49 2008: epmd running - daemon = 0
epmd: Mon Feb 04 20:58:49 2008: failed to bind socket: No error

C:\Program Files\erl5.6\erts-5.6\bin>epmd -port 4368
epmd: Mon Feb 04 20:58:57 2008: epmd running - daemon = 0
------------------------------------------------------------------

* the 'erl -sname' gives me the same error message than the 'erl -
name'

=> can i specify when i start 'erl -name' that it should use other
port than standard ?

=> i also will check again my firewall settings.....
