Can a port be restricted so only one program uses it.

We have Microsoft Retail Management software and for a reason we can't I dentify when the server reboots the port that the software is using becomes unavailable and I have to change the software to another port.  Until I can change the port, our stores can't use the POS system because the software on the server isn't running.  port 34200

So can the port be dedicated to only this software.  Or any other ideas would be VERY helpful.

    I think you can only have one program listening to a port.  Download TCPView from Sysinternals so you can see if something else is trying to use that port.
