UX Installation Woes

Has anyone successfully installed a UX400 board on a 
Sun 4/370 running Sun OS 4.1 with OpenWindows?

The error which I haven't been able to resolve occurs when I run
ivory-servicesd.  The Sun replies:

  udp_agent_open: Address already in use.

The UX board has been assigned a unique IP address, I run ivory-life 
and ivory-servicesd while logged in as root, and the hardware checks
don't detect any errors on the UX board itself. 

I'm still able to call genera, display a fep window, and run the default
hello.boot file, but upon booting, the fep window disappears into an icon.
The boot.boot file contains three lines:

  Clear Machine
  Load World

Nothing unusual occurs when I manually step through the first two commands
to load Network-from-Genera-8-0, but entering the Start command causes the
window to iconify.  After about a minute, the icon stops showing activity
and a message appears on the window where I invoked genera, saying 

>> Attempt to get data from broken TCP connection to DIS-EMB-HOST 6000 (:X-WINDOW-SYSTEM), local port 1025.
Unable to start console.

Software support hasn't been much help - they think that I'm 
having trouble because the UX is being installed on 4.1 and that most
users installed the board prior to 4.1 and didn't have problems when
they upgraded to 4.1  So far, they haven't given me any solutions.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
