SSHD does not start

I installed OpenSSH on AIX 5.1 but when I try to start it, it says:

bash-2.05a# /usr/sbin/sshd
bash-2.05a# tail /var/adm/syslog.out
Jan  8 11:52:22 xyz sshd[1368252]: fatal: Cannot bind any address.

Do you have any network interfaces up?
ifconfig -au

Can you run the server in debug mode? ie: /path/to/sshd -D -d -e

Yep, the network on this machine is already configured:

bash-2.05a# ifconfig -au
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        inet netmask 0xff000000 broadcast
        inet6 ::1/0
         tcp_sendspace 65536 tcp_recvspace 65536

This is the output of the debug mode:

bash-2.05a# which sshd
bash-2.05a# /usr/sbin/sshd -D -d -e
debug1: sshd version OpenSSH_4.1p1
debug1: private host key: #0 type 0 RSA1
debug1: read PEM private key done: type RSA
debug1: private host key: #1 type 1 RSA
debug1: read PEM private key done: type DSA
debug1: private host key: #2 type 2 DSA
debug1: rexec_argv[0]='/usr/sbin/sshd'
debug1: rexec_argv[1]='-D'
debug1: rexec_argv[2]='-d'

You have a DNS problem (host name, IP address, name-IP resolution), it seems.
