with torque 4.2.5 I am trying to set up alternate ports for

Following the  pbs_server and pbs_mom port setting documentation
the server_name is ion-21-13.local:35001
and the server/mom start settings are

PBS_DAEMON="/opt/torque/sbin/pbs_server -H  ion-21-13.local -p 35001 -M 35002 -R 35003"
PBS_DAEMON="$SBIN_PATH/pbs_mom -H gcn-20-11 -S 35001 -M 35002 -R 35003"

The mom does start but is never able to connect to the server on port 35001

root      68867      1  0 14:28 ?        00:00:00 /opt/torque/sbin/pbs_mom -H gcn-20-11 -S 35001 -M 35002 -R 35003 -p -d /var/spool/torque

10/10/2013 14:28:21;0001;   pbs_mom.68871;Svr;pbs_mom;LOG_ERROR::mom_server_update_stat, Couldn't read a reply from the server
10/10/2013 14:28:21;0001;   pbs_mom.68871;Svr;pbs_mom;LOG_ERROR::mom_server_all_update_stat, Could not contact any of the servers to send an update

Stopping the mom does not work either:
# service pbs_mom stop
Shutting down TORQUE Mom: cannot connect to MOM on node 'localhost', errno=111
(Connection refused)

Any idea how to get torque working on alternate ports?
