Hi Tasha, I think it's a known problem in G2.1.1 and fixed in G2.1.4.

You may look into http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4442 for more details.

Hope this could help.  :)

   <attribute name="address"></attribute>

But this information may help in tracking down java.net.BindExceptions
