Hi, i'd like to edit this post and close the topic as i found out where was the problem.
It was a misconfiguration of IP route table.
I just added
ifconfig lo0
route add -net
and tomcat started without problems.
Now i can begin to play..i think i'll be back soon for questions.


Hi everyone,
first of all, sorry for my English..
I'm new to OR and i've some troubles in starting it.
i always get this error (below the stack):SEVERE: StandardServer.await: create8805: Cannot assign requested address

The Pi is configured with a fresh install of the last debian ( and icedtea-6-jre-cacao.
I googled around e and tried to change Catalina's port..http to 9090 and showdown port to 8805 (as u can see from the log)
I also verified there's no other process using the ports..
I really don't know what's going on.. can someone help me?

Tanks for help.

Here's the stack:
pi@raspberrypi ~/openremote/bin $ sudo ./ run
Using CATALINA_BASE: /home/pi/openremote
Using CATALINA_HOME: /home/pi/openremote
