if we need to start from the beginning, this might sound a bit silly but worths a try :)
if you are using windows, is IIS web server running? It might be using port 80

:) not a problem
try this software

http://www.downloadfreetrial.com/internet/inte8490.html


a little information about it

"Mizo - XP Netstats Bar is an application that monitors all of the open ports on your computer. It tells you what ports are open, what addresses they are trying to contact, and what applications are trying to open these ports."

try one open port from here...

typing netstat -a in a command prompt should give you a list of open ports, and where they're connecting to

No. That program didnt work. But thanks.. its a cool little program. It seems any port I put it on is in use with any web server i've tired. do you have any nice web servers aside from apache or IIS? I would use them, but they are confusing. thanks.
