Failed to Connect to Server

On the other machines it is listening on 0.0.0.0 but this one is showing
127.0.0.1 -- that's the mystery I'm trying to solve.  How can I make it
listen on 0.0.0.0?

	On all the machines I have, it's listening on 0.0.0.0.  That's
also the address on which other servers like HTTP are listening.
