Is another service already listening on this port?  Have you tried

netstat -a -n | grep 81 | grep LISTEN

If you can't start on 81, how about 82?  Not that you should have to,
but have you tried doing a listen on the particular socket?  Instead of
just having "Listen 81" have you tried "Listen AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD:81" to
see if there is any difference?
