Symptom

Throw the SocketException to announce "Invalid argument" for an available port.

Root Cause

That socket may be created for IPv6 only.

Resolution

  1. Use "sysctl net.ipv6.bindv6only" to check if "net.ipv6.bindv6only = 1" in the local environment, if so turn it off:
  2. If this doesn't work, try to set it by JVM parameters. Add "-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true" into JAVA_OPTS. See Setting Properties and Options on Startup for more information on how to set a system property.
