Failed to create listen socket, aborting
This line suggest that you're trying to use active mode to connect, which is doomed to fail in the vast majority of cases (you need to forward a port in the router and open it in the firewall). I don't remember if it's the default setting though. Posting the whole list of commands could confirm this.

Go to the settings and ask it to use passive mode instead.
