    jbossdon Newbie

      Hi, i am new to the site and need assistance please.  Just installed Jboss on SVR 2K8 x64, when starting up the Jboss service, the Server Log shows that Port 8180 is already in use. Any advise?

                try if u can run tcpview provided by microsoft. It will tell u exactly who is using your port.



                If u find that 8180 is used by another program  you shutdown or kill using taskmanager.

                If you cannot stop the above process - you have an option to change the ports used by jboss


                edit the following file to any other port above 1024.



                remember to restart jboss after you change server.xml

                  Thanks for your responses. I ran tcpview but port 8180 does not reflect anywhere. Also changed the port to and re-started jboss but then it comes up with the same issue that the new port assigned is in use. Forgot to mention that this Server is a Virtual Server.

                    1) Have you made any changes to the windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts file?


                    2) How are you starting JBoss AS? Specifically, are you supplying the -b option?


                    I ask the above because improperly configured hostname/ipaddress mappings can cause this problem.


                    3) Are you running a firewall? If so, which one?

                      Check the antivirus software. It seems antirvirus is blocking java from opening a port.
