I am conducting a tech training and have to simulate a port being unvailable for siteminder.
Is thre a way to make a port busy without loading software? Again would want something to grab a port to make it appear busy. Sorry on WIndows 2003 server but it does have mks toolkit installed so some unix command are available

    not to sure what you you mean a TCP/IP port such as HTTP port 80?

    If so, when you mean busy, do you mean unavaible? You could block the port using the built in windows firewall?
