TCP Server in gr-ais

I am having zero luck getting the tcp server to function. I can run
gr-ais with no problems and get zero’s to output(im in my offic with the
small SDR antenna) but can not for the life of me get the TCP server to
work. When i try telnet’ing or using an AIS client software i just get
connection refused. Can anyone please help?? Thanks

I now wrote a line in the TCP server:

if options.tcp is True
Print “Trying to work” #new line
s = socket.socket(socket.AF__…

It prints nothing…
Why is not even calling this function? What is going on here?
