Hi,

I'm getting the message:
-- Default host on port 80 has a listening problem (Local URL http://127.0.0.1)

I looked at Scott1x responses... he resolved the problem by making the web server a Linux service. I don't know how to do that on Windows XP... besides I don't think its applicable.

I'm running Abyss X1 on a windows XP workstation. I have a McAfee fire wall installed. Inspite of that the web server was listening on host port 80 with no problems. The last network installation program I installed, before the problem was observed, was Microsoft IIS 5.1 services and SMTP service.

So, Internet Explorer and Abyss show console work fine. But the Abyss application abyssws will not load due to the listening problem on port 80.

If you have your firewall up, you need to allow the port to be open. Also, if you are behind a broadband router, you need to port forward the port to the local ip address of the pc that Abyss is running on.

Maybe another program is using port 80? Skype uses port 80 for example.

I just installed 2.5 it kept installing to port 8000. When I would type in the URL for my website, it would go straight to my router. When I would change the port to 80 it would give me a listening error. I never had this much problem at all before. So, I decided to come here for a fix first before getting bent out of shape and blaming the new version. You said Skype and I knew what was up. The new MySpaceIM has Skype integrated into it now. So, I shut down MySpaceIM (instant messenger) and restarted Abyss, and there you have it, I'm up and running on port 80. So, if any of you are having a hard time getting up and running on port 80, and you have the new MySpace IM, shut it down. I guess you will have to find an older version of the IM or quit MySpace all together...lol Hope this helps someone

Well, most people don't run programs like that on their server. More importantly though, I think it was an unwise decision to use port 80 by the software developers.

...especially considering that some major ISPs block port 80!

...Infact, there isn't a soul that does, not even I. However, I have my Server running on my computer, like I have yahoo messenger running on my computer, like, I have an AV running on my computer.... See my point? Now, if that is what you meant, I don't see how you can say "most people" "Most People" I know use myspace/and IM.

No, not trying to be a prick, It's my typical responce at 7:30 in the morning rubbing the sleep out of my eyes. lol, I'm a cranky morning person. ;)

A good solution to have Abyss Web Server always use port 80 and not conflict with other software is to install it as a Windows service. In that mode it will run before any user session application and will be using port 80 before Skype or the likes start.

There is no need to bring up a 6 month old topic.
