Linux SCTP issue- How to use SO_REUSEADDR in kernel 2.6.32

I am using Redhat 6.8 kernel 2.6.32 and the port 3868 is not able to connect via SCTP with the error 'Address already in Use'. I know the details about killing a process already using the port and reestablish the connection but I dont want it .

3868 port is being used by TCP already and I want SCTP also to connect the same port using SO_REUSEADDR.Is there a way to do it or is there any way to tweak into kernel to reuse the same port concurrently. I want 3868 port to listen by SCTP.
