Yes. There are restrictions. Make sure you move the data and put it 
back where it was before -- do the process without altering the 
contents of /etc/box and it'll work.

Yes. There is a reason that "ListenAddresses" is in the plural. 
Separate entries by commas:

	ListenAddresses = inet:,inet:

Don't put any spaces anywhere in that line.
