Yeah, I should have said that I saw that, including the docs in the
config file - would have saved you some lines.

Nope - That's why I ask.

I am pretty sure I already tried multiple versions, as well as Xensource
Binaries and Debian Etch packages, now and here with Ubuntu Edgy and
native package, but there is nothing listening on any new port after
setting tcp xmlrpc server to yes and rebooting.
And I see no errors that might tell me why it can't be started.

Is it maybe depending on some additional libraries, and silently
discarded if those aren't there?

One thing i that I'm curious, the other is, that xenman seems to use it
for remote controlling Xen.
