It works for me, after I removed "use Demo".
It's not supposed to return - did you read the docs? [hint "The
SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Daemon class encapsulates a reference to an
object of the HTTP::Daemon class (from the LWP package)". Did you read
the HTTP::Daemon docs?]

netstat -a doesn't show any activity for me either, so evidently that
does NOT imply that the daemon didn't start.
But what does work is making a connection to the server with my browser!
