I'm trying to run a simple udp sink using following command

gst-launch-1.0 udpsrc uri=udp:// port=1234 ! fakesink

where in on of the system on the network(Ping to this system
works perfectly fine)

I get the following error when I run

Setting pipeline to PAUSED ...
ERROR: Pipeline doesn't want to pause.
ERROR: from element /GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstUDPSrc:udpsrc0: Could not
get/set settings from/on resource.
Additional debug info:

bind failed: Error binding to address: Cannot assign requested address
Setting pipeline to NULL ...
Freeing pipeline ...
rsd7 at rsd7-ThinkCentre-M57e:~$

What could be the issue?
