Did you quit esd within the past two minutes? If so, this is normal.

When a server diconnects from a TCP port, there's normally a two-minute
delay before the kernel will let a new server have that port. This has to
do with very low-level TCP/IP rules.

So wait two minutes and try to run esd again. If it works then, your system
is normal. If it still doesn't work, you have a problem.
