You're not asking it to tell you what you want to know.

Are you running it with the current directory being the example dir? 
Because the server examples are built to get their assets from ./, eg, 
./mount-origin so they can avoid having to deal with crossplatform 
boilerplate for where to install things obscuring the important bits of 
what the example is trying to demonstrate.

That's not telling you anything, if you want to see who is listening on 
tcp you want, eg netstat -ltn
