Message: Can't start HTTP listener on address

Explanation: Some other process (Apache, IIS, Skype, another SQL Anywhere engine, etc) is already using TCP/IP port 80.

Either tell that process to stop using port 80 or tell Foxhound to use a different port.

For example, to stop Skype from using port 80:

  • Open the Skype window,

  • click on Tools - Connection options...

  • uncheck the "Use port 80 and 443 as an alternatives for incoming connections" option,

  • click on Save button and

  • restart Skype to make the change effective.
