Jruby --ng-server fails trying to bind to a specific port (2113)

I’m trying to use JRuby’s nailgun
I can’t seem to get the thing to start up for me:

[email protected] ~
$ jruby --ng-server &
[1] 31219

[email protected] ~
$ NGServer started on, port 2113.

I’m not sure why I’m getting this, but I know for a fact that port 2113
not open, as I can’t find any tcp/udp port open at all on my Mac:

netstat -nlp tcp
netstat -nlp udp

Any tips for troubleshooting this? Is there a way to specify a
port altogether to rule out some errant process hogging port 2113 on my
