Orion error - NowServlets

After months of being inactive here at Cattle drive, I finally can work back on assignments. I had the first Servlets (NowServlets) working a while but now that I am trying to run Orion on my computer (same computer as before), it will not work. The error is below.

C:\orion>java -jar orion.jar
Error starting HTTP-Server: Address already in use: JVM_Bind
Orion/2.0.7 initialized

I saw this posting, changed the port and the error went away.
However, the program will not run nor the default browser.

I think it has something to do with the last part of the thread which is....

Now, because you have changed the port, you must do <a href="http://localhost<b rel="nofollow">:8080</b>/" target="_blank">http://localhost:8080/ to access the default page from your browser.

Does anyone know where I can do that?

1) Open browser
2) Type http://localhost:8080
3) Hit Enter

Thanks Maneesh.

I was not thinking. Of course, I need to change the address bar to port:8080 from 80.

Have a nice day!
I agree. Here's the link:
