    Recurring JVM_BIND:nnnn port nnnn already in use exceptions

    Martin Kultermann Newbie

      Hi everyone, I downloaded and installed the latest jboss-4.0.3SP1 release and have a recurring issue starting the server and running deployments.

      I'm using the plain vanilla run.bat process locally on WinXP and first received the error for port 8080. I don't have any HTTP services I know of (Oracle, Tomcat etc..) and do not see 8080 in use when I run "netstat -a" at the DOS prompt.

      I changed the port to 8088 in ...\deploy\jbossweb-tomcat55.sar\meta-inf\jboss-service.xml and it started just fine, once. I shut it down with the jmx-console and thought I was good to go.

      Now, every time I try to restart it, I get various "JVM_BIND:nnnn port nnnn already in use" exceptions on ports 8088, 8083, 1098, 1099, 4445 etc...

      I have scanned the FAQ, Wiki and Forums and found no answers.

      Would appreciate any pointers to figure out why the ports are busy (how to tell they're busy) and/or how to release them.
