Hi everyone,

I am setting up xorp.ct on multiple OpenVZ containers.

Could you please let me know how to run multiple virtual routers on
one container? When I tried starting another OSPF instance on the same
machine, I have got the following message:

 2010/03/31 17:30:09.762775  ERROR xorp_rtrmgr:29781 LIBCOMM
libcomm/comm_sock.c:160 comm_sock_bind4 ] Error binding socket (family
= 2, my_addr =, my_port = 19999): Address already in use
[ 2010/03/31 17:30:09.763113  ERROR xorp_rtrmgr:29781 RTRMGR
rtrmgr/main_rtrmgr.cc:315 run ] Address already in use: a finder may
already be running.

How can I configure on which port the process should start? Or this is
not configurable?

Thank you for your help!
