I've attempted to restart the daemon, even on a different port.

It might help if you mention which software you're running and on
which platform you're running it.

If it's Linux, you might want to check that /dev/pts is mounted.  For
most other systems (and older Linuxes for that matter) you might
want to check if you've run out of pseudoterminals and that you
actually *have* the device nodes for them.

If it's the latter, some variant of "(cd /dev/ && ./MAKEDEV pty)"
might help (see your platform's documentation).

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
