Google Stenographer - builder.SetUp(socktype, options) error


New Member

Very much a beginner to Linux here, so starting here in the hopes someone can help me. I am trying to install the Google Stenographer tool on my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS server following the directions on this site and this site on GitHub. By all accounts, the install and configurations seem to be correct. However, when I try to start Stenographer (using 'sudo service stenographer start'), it runs for no more than a second and then aborts. The logs show the following repeatedly, which I believe is what's causing the issue:

[stenotype.cc:588] CHECK(SUCCEEDED(__check_success_error__)) builder.SetUp(socktype, options): Operation not permitted <- CreateSocket

I immediately suspected a permissions issue, and found this that would seem to support that, but I have verified the stenotype.cc file Owner and Group permissions of root with Read & Write access.

Does anybody know what could be the issue and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance,
Jeff S.
