ServerSocket Port Binding Error

ServerSocket Port Binding Error

Question:
My Java server compiles perfectly, but when I try to run it on mymachine I get an error when it tries to open up the ServerSocket onport 2525. I have tried it on another machine and it works fine. Italso worked on my own machine the first few times I tried it.

Answer:
Without knowing the exact exception you are getting, it is notpossible for me to definitively diagnose the problem.

However, it sounds like the port is probably in use when it is failing. Thiscould be caused by an error in closing the socket in one of yourprevious runs, or from another program on the system using the port.To see which ports are in use on your machine you can use the netstatcommand if you are using a Unix-based OS or netstat.exe on Win32.
