[Mono-dev] Can't create a local tcp connection on mono

The code below works on Windows. However, when running on mono 2.10.5 on 
Gentoo Linux, the listener throws the exception: 
  System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: The requested address is not valid 
in this context

Listening on the address IPAddress.Any instead of the loopback address 
makes the listener run without exception. However, when the client is 
started, no connection is created (the server eventually times out).

Can anybody explain why I can't create a local connection on mono?



Basically my listener looks like this:

     var listener = new TcpListener(IPAddress.Parse(""), port);


     TcpClient client = listener.AcceptTcpClient();

The client:

      var remoteEP = new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Parse(""), port);

      var client = new TcpClient(AddressFamily.InterNetwork);
