Nope -- it won't run that way at all, AFAIK. If you've started it as a
service, then the service OWNS the port, and running it in the DOS box
won't work because the port is not available. I tend to run it NOT as a
service, so I can see the authentication messages in the window. This lets
me know at a quick glance that it is working.

Check your Application log -- is the service actually starting? Probably not.
