Re: release the port

Haeman,

Perhaps you could use the lsof tool if you have it or you could use this command to get more information on it netstat -a | grep Port_number

Regards,

Jaime.

Re: release the port

The lsof utility would be a great thing to have here.

If it's a TCP port, running "lsof -i tcp:5000" would tell you the PID of the process holding it. If it's a UDP port, "lsof -i udp:5000" would do the same thing.
