Can´t initialize a socket on the web server for listening

Hi everyone,

Now that I got Jigsaw working with our CGI application
broker.exe,  I had the following error message displayed by
broker.exe (after setting the CgiFrame instance with debug set
to true, otherwise I only got "CGI script emitted  invalid status"):

"Can't initialize a socket on the Web server machine for listening. This
could indicate an overloaded server, or it could be a bug. If you suspect a
bug, report this information to technical support:
init_server_port(host="NULL", port=-1) returned -1. "

Some more details:
- I was able to verify that the broker itself works fine as long as it does
not try to connect
  to our Warehouse server
- my CgiFrame has the following attributes set:
	- Content Type: text/html
	- Command: full path to broker.exe
	- no header: off
	- generates form: off
	- debug: on (to get above message)

Another thing: I noticed I could not start the broker by using GET, only
POST seems to be
supported. Is this true or did I miss some configuration issue?

Can someone please help me here? Thank you  so much!
