I have installed the Lotus R8 client and server on my laptop so I can see what the new versions looks like and to have a play. I have been running, successfully lotus 7 clinet and server in the past C:\Lotus.

Prior to installing R8 i renamed the R7 installation from C:\Lotus to C:\LotusR7 and then installed R8.

The server and client have successfully installed however I keep getting the following HTTP error:

HTTP Server Error - Unable to Bind port 80, port may be in use or user needs net_privaddr privilege
HTTP Server Shutdown

Can anyone offer any advice as to what to what I can do here please?

    It is not recommended to run both client and server on the same machine.

    Check your firewall settings and anything else that may be using port 80.

    Disable all startup via MSconfig, an check for malware.

    I hope this helps !

    Thats exactly what it was. Another service was using port 80. I disabled it and HTTP  task was OK.

    I have run, in the past, both server and client on my laptop. It's just for my own benefit i.e. to play with and learn. I would never do this at work.
