Port 80

Hi All,

I created Port 80 and trying to enable it but getting following Error:

ISS.0070.0021] Failed to start HTTPListener@80: [ISS.0070.9009] Error starting to listen: Permission denied

Is it resevered port in Wm? Your advice please

Thanks,
Faisal

Faisal,

As far as webmethods is concerned, port 80 is not reserved / blocked. Probably the OS is blocking webmethods from opening port 80, maybe because another program already has it in use?

Kind regards,

Koen

i will check with my admin,

I checked, we are not running port 80 at OS but still getting same error:

ISS.0070.0021] Failed to start HTTPListener@80: [ISS.0070.9009] Error starting to listen: Permission denied

The “permission denied” message leads me to believe you are running on Unix/Linux as a non-root user. Ports 1024 and below can only have listeners established by root.

“netstat -a” will tell you if there is already a listener on a given port. But if that were the case, the error message would have said something like “port in use”.

HTH,
