    Port 80, 2008 Server R2

    Hi All,

    A client has a 3rd party portal application that runs on port 80, I have
    gone into IIS 7 and edit the bindings for the default website to run off a
    different port. Restarted IIS / server and the Default website is indeed on
    the other port, and Port 80 returns no page.

    Checking into the server connections via Netstat it shows 80 as listening
    but a "can not obtain ownership information" when trying to get the process
    holding it open. Going one step farther, I got the PID for this port, which
    was 4, the System and cannot seem to free up 80.

    The problem I have is when I try to run the 3rd party app on 80 it does to
    appear, I configure it for another port and it is fine.

    Any Ideas? I know IIS 7 is a little different but I do not see any other
    area to modify the port or is this the OS now holding onto 80 for whatever
    reason?.

    No Apache, SQL reporting services or anything like that on this server,
    which I have seen interfere in other situations. I am scratching my head on
    this one.

    Any Ideas..???

    Hello Mark,

    For IIS i suggest to use:
    http://forums.iis.net/

    Or;
    microsoft.public.inetserver.iis
    microsoft.public.inetserver.misc

    Best regards
