      Instant Web Publishing won't start and Port number conflicts

      Post

      I have been sucessfully web publishing 2 files from my mac on our intranet.  I had a MBP with 10.6.8 and FMP 11.  Yesterday i transfered everything to a new MBP running 10.7.2 Lion.  When i launched FMP after a long pause it gave a message saying there was a conflict on port 80 and Web Publishing could not be used.  I continued to open the file, went to sharing - instant web publishing and went to switch it on.  The port confilt dialogue came up asking me to select another port.  I tried 591 as suggested in previous strings and my mac tells me the port must be between 1024 and 65535 ! i can try any number but after a long pause it comes back saying "filemaker cannot share files over the internet because instant web publishing could not be started"  any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks Phil.
