Connection Refused on port 9240


I have a problem with telnetting to a port on my linux.

I am able to telnet to localhost.
I am able to telnet to another computer.
I am able to telnet to myself.

I have a deamon running on port 9240 listening for telnet.

I tried to telnet 0 9240
i got a message
"telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection Refused"

I have the same deamon running on another computer on the same port and I can telnet to the deamon on that computer.

But for this computer I can't telnet to the port 9240.

I checked the firewall, hosts.allow, hosts.deny. all of them are ok.
I'm puzzled as to why I just can't telnet to this port.

well, it happened to me once that I was trying to execute a simple server in a port that was being used by another I didnīt even remember that was running. I just used one other port.
sorry I donīt have a better solution.

If you Nmap it, can you see the port as being open from the outside?
