Release Port 80

Posted on 2006-03-22

When I run "Start" from the View Menu, I get the error message:

"The specified port is in use."

I want the Web Matrix server to use port 80.
I don't have any other web server in use and have not installed IIS.

How can I see what port are in use and release port 80, if necessary ?

    It seems to work when you use the default 8080
