memcached plugin doesn't seem to work


I’m using Percona v. 5.6.26-74.0 with memcached plugin installed by following the guidelines:
Mysql clearly shows that memcached daemon is active (when I issue show plugins), I’ve also configured the port to be 11222. Everything like in the article above. I’ve tried to add an -l property as well, but I can’t actually connect to memcached.

“telnet 11222” leads to “Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused” and there’s not a single listening instance on port 11222 in “netstat -tap”.

But all the tables were created successfully. What can be the problem?
