Are you sure nothing is running on it?
netstat -l
Will show you all listening programs and what ports they are on.
Also look at netstat -a and see if 113 is there either.

Sometimes you think it's not listening, but it is. It could also be that another program is using that port, in which case netstat -p will show you which program it is.
