TCP connections are not possible to the specified server


I'm trying to add an additional application server instance to a HA PI 7.1 system.

During the installation, I get the error:

TCP connections are not possible to the specified server.
SOLUTION: Check that the tcp protocol is enabled on the server and there are no conflicts on binding ports (you can see it in the server error log).

No messages are being raised with the Windows system logs.

I have tried restarting the server and resuming the installation, but this did not help.

Here is the relevant part of the SAP log:

Please can you tell me how to resolve this?
