Hi all This is Bharath. I am getting " Address already in use" while trying to conncet to FTP, I am using org.apache.commons API for connecting to FTP ,transferring files and for disconnection, I am getting this error only in one server where my application is deployed and other servers where the same application deployed this error is not coming.

Can any one help me resolving this issue.

Thanks In Advance,

As the error message suggests, the port you are using to listen will be in use by some other process. (You can not listen on the same port from two different processes)
On linux, you can do a netstat to find out which process is using the port in question.

apigee, a better way to API!
