License Manager Service won't start

I was having problems connecting with our license manager (multiple firewalls - fun) and tried to pin the port to a specific number, following the directions found on this site. However, once I finished editing the service.txt file, the license manager service would not restart. The debug listing is:

[INDENT]13:55:57 (lmgrd) Starting vendor daemon at port 27000
13:55:57 (lmgrd) Using vendor daemon port 27000 specified in license file
13:55:57 (lmgrd) REStarted ARCGIS (pid 5572)
13:55:57 (ARCGIS) FLEXnet Licensing version v11.10.0.0 build 95001 i86_n3
13:55:58 (ARCGIS) Server started on prvgis2 for: ACT 
13:55:58 (ARCGIS) Viewer  Viewer 
13:55:58 (lmgrd) ARCGIS using TCP-port 0
13:55:58 (ARCGIS) tcp_s is bad!!! Exiting
13:55:58 (ARCGIS) EXITING DUE TO SIGNAL 28 Exit reason 5
13:56:03 (lmgrd) ARCGIS exited with status 28 (Communications error)[/INDENT]

This is a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, running in a VM instance. The server firewall is running, port 27000 (among others) is open and there is no other license manager on this server. Other services on this machine that use TCP/IP such as ArcGIS Server 10.1.1 are working just fine.

Any pointers or help is appreciated.

P.S. Turning off the server's firewall had no apparent effect ...
