You perhaps have another copy (or something else that consumes the UDP protocol) already running. Or something that uses that port for a different purpose.

Simplest thing might be to make sure you disable all other versions, and if it still does not work, reboot.

To actually find out what it is, if your gateway’s OS is complete enough to have it, try something like

sudo netstat -nlp

And see what is listed for udp or udp6 and port 1700 - for example I can clearly see the gateway bridge process running on mine.
