You have another process already using the required TCP address/port, 
possibly the AG2.4 Service Manager?.

If you do a 'ps -ef | grep python', you'll see the existing python process, 
kill any python process that shouldn't be running with a 'kill -9 PID' 
(replace PID with the PID number of the process). if it still doesn't work, 
reboot the PC.
