Connection server - Port 80

Hi there

I am having problem with installing connection server (Security Server) on a virtual machine after few initial steps it failed as

"TCP port 80 is already in use. This port needs to be available for product to be installed. Please removed any software the might be using this port and try again."

I used netstats to find which programme is using port 80 and revealed that Systems using it.

Any Idea how to close port 80 in order to install Connection Server.

It could be that Microsoft IIS is being turned on.

stop and disable the www service

type services.msc from the run command prompt > scroll down to World Wide Publishing service.

or go to control panel > Administrative Tools > Services.msc > World Wide Publishing service.

netstat will tell you if something is listening on port 80.. but idle-jam is probably right on..

Hello,

I did cross verify and found no Services like WWW or any other service is using this port.

Could anybody tell me how to identifiy which application or Service is using Port 80 any perticular command.

netstat -ano

Look at the PID of the process listening on port 80 (e.g. PID 1234)

tasklist /FI "PID eq 1234"

The Image Name will show you who is listening on port 80.

It was firefox, which occupied port 80. I un-installed Firefox and it worked for me. Probably this is another solution.

Hi, all.

I have the same problem in a new installed Windows Server, so it doesn't have Firefox, IIS or another application. The output of netstat -ano shows only a non-routable address 0.0.0.0:80. 

Anyone had the same problem?

Regards.
