Title

Port Numer Conflict

Post

I know this issue has been posted about before, but I searched and couldn't find any solutions.

 

I am running FM 9 Pro Adv on a Mac with leopard.  When I try to open FM by clicking on a .fp7 or clicking on the FM icon on the bottom bar I get an error message that reads "FM cannot shar files over the web because of a port number conflict".  It then asks me to change the port.  I toggle between 80 and 591 but to no avail, I keep getting the same error.

 

Does anyone know how to find out what is using those ports and creating the conflicts, and how I can go about freeing one of those ports so I can enable IWP?

 

Second (less important question), can IWP be set up over a non internet system (poorly described, I know).  For example, have one computer acting as the host, and this computer is wired to a wirless router, and other computers that can connect to the router access the db through IWP?  The wireless router is not connected to the internet though.  Could this be described as a intranet?

 

Thanks

Craig
