    I'm having this error all the time, for which I cannot find solution:

    In Event Viewer -> Application log

    1st - info message:
    listening on IPv4 interface TCP/IP Interface 2, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx#53

    2nd - error message:
    could not listen on UDP socket: permission denied

    3rd - error message:
    creating IPv4 interface Loopback Interface 1 failed; interface ignored

    and then again for every IP address, and on and on...

    (note: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is server's IP address)

    Does anyone have a clue what might cause this and how to fix it?

    Edit: here's the screenshot

    It is DNS server problem, probably Bind 9.2.4
    Check your firewall in Plesk CP there must be rules which allow both UDP/TCP 53rd ports
    If your WIndows 2003 is not with SP1, check Windows firewall for same ports

    Microsoft DNS Server 5.2.3790.1830 @ Windows 2003 Server

    Okay, you got me lost here... I've checked the Plesk firewall and saw there are 2 rules:

    DNS TCP -> 53 / TCP
    DNS UDP -> 53 / UDP

    It's clearly they both use the same port. What exactely should I do now? Change the port of UDP to, lets say, 54?

    No, it is OK, TCP and UDP use different sockets to bind ports.
    Well, the next step:
    Check TaskManager and event logs for "named" (exactly)

    John, I wrote it down (and attached screenshot) in my first post.
    As for the Task Manager, what exactely should I be looking at?

    Sorry, didn't pay attention to your .gif

    Mea culpa :)

    1.Go to computer management, Services, look for Plesk Name Server
    2.Right click->Properties->Set Startup_type Disabled->Stop service-click OK

    Thanks... it resolved the problem :) how did you know what to do? And what was "Plesk Name Server" for?

    "Plesk name server" is a BIND DNS service.

    Weird... Thing is I don't remember whether whis happened before v7.5.5 update...
    I've used MS DNS server in "Components management" within Plesk from the beginning.
