LCDproc Allowing Remote Access

Howdy, I got LCDproc to work locally and want to allow remote connections to the LCDproc server LCDd on my local network so that all my machines can output info to the screen. From the documentation this should be as simple as changing the Bind=localhost to Bind= in the /etc/LCDd.conf file. Unfortunately when I do this and restart the deamon, it won't output to the lcd. When I start the program manually, LCDd -d HD44780 -a -p 13666 it gives a socket error, and doesn't actually start. I'm assuming the daemon runs into the same problem, just doesn't let me know. I'm running Debian Sarge and maybe there is some additional config files to give it permission? I tried -u root while running as root (which I know security wise is bad) but thought it might get over any permissions barriers. Anyone else have advice?
