Windows Port Issue – Bind: Address Already

Many times we used to see “Bind: Address Already” when running servers like apache, tomcat, jboss, weblogic, …etc in windows.

Step 1: Generally the given port is took over by other process. Find it with following commands.

>netstat -a -n -o (This gives Process ID)
>netstat -an
>netstat -an |find /i “listening”

Step 2: Use task manager and find that process who took over the port.

Step 3: Kill the process or change the configurations of respective application.

Issue resolved.
