I installed Tomcat 4.0.1 on NT and win2000. It runs OK on NT. But on win2000 I try to start it and I get message in the first dos window: C:\tomcat401\bin>startup Using CATALINA_BASE: .. Using CATALINA_HOME: .. Using CLASSPATH: ..\bin\bootstrap.jar;C:\jdk1.3\lib\tools.jar Using JAVA_HOME: C:\jdk1.3 C:\tomcat401\bin> In the second dos window I get: Catalina.start: LifecycleException: Error creating server socket: java.net.Bin dException: Address in use: JVM_Bind LifecycleException: Error creating server socket: java.net.BindException: Addr ess in use: JVM_Bind at org.apache.catalina.connector.warp.WarpConnector.initialize(WarpConne ctor.java:483) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardService.initialize(StandardService.j ava:454) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardServer.initialize(StandardServer.jav a:552) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.start(Catalina.java:775) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.execute(Catalina.java:681) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.process(Catalina.java:179) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Native Method) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(Bootstrap.java:243) Any ideas? I could not find which address Tomcat is trying to use. Thanks. Bruce

Are you sure it's not because Tomcat is already running? That is usually the cause of this error on WinNT/2000, because on those OS's Tomcat can be run as a service, which by default, starts when the computer does.
Tomcat runs on the port you specify in server.xml

I checked again, only IBM HTTP server and DB2 are running. I stopped HTTP but still can’t start Tomcat.
Well, it's the WarpConnector where the fault occurs, so check your server.xml to see what ports that component is configured for. I know how to track down port owners for Linux, but last time I asked about doing it Windows no one could give me an answer. You could always to to telnet to that port ID and see if what kind of response it gives, I suppose.

Thanks! WarpConnector is configured to use port 8008. I changed it to 8018 and now Tomcat runs! Who is using port 8008? Can I track down this?
