In a large stockpot over high heat, combine about 4 quarts of water and 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until fork-tender but still slightly firm. Add the sausage and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the corn and shrimp and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until just cooked through. Transfer to a large bowl and serve with the cocktail sauce on the side.
