There are various syscalls that might have failed, alas they are all
mapped to RPC2_FAIL in the CreateIPSocket routine, so I can't really tell
why this is failing.

You could run 'strace /usr/sbin/codasrv' and see if we get errors for
any of the following syscalls,

    socket()	  /* allocates a socket */
    bind()	  /* binds it to the port we're interested in */
    getsockname() /* gets the address and port we were given */
