I’m currently attempting to setup a SiriServer (that’s beside the point) on Xubuntu 12.10 x64, when I run the server python returns error

socket.error: [Errno 98] Address already in use.

The server by default is attempting to run on port 443, which unfortunetly is required in order for this application to work.

To double check if anything is running on port 443, I execute the following:

lsof -i :443

There’s no results, unless I have something like Chrome or Firefox open, which I end up closing. Here’s the full return from attempting to run the server application.

[email protected]:~/Applications/SiriServer$ sudo python siriServer.py
CRITICAL load_plugins Failed loading plugin due to missing module: 'Wordnik library not found. Please install wordnik library! e.g. sudo easy_install wordnik'
INFO <module> Starting Server

    server = SiriServer('', options.port)
  File "siriServer.py", line 425, in __init__
    self.bind((host, port))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/asyncore.py", line 342, in bind

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/socket.py", line 224, in meth
    return getattr(self._sock,name)(*args)
socket.error: [Errno 98] Address already in use

I’m stuck on what to do, as this is the last part of setting up this application. Any help is appreciated.
