iperf bind failed: Permission denied

For some reason doesn't work for port 80 and 8080
C:\>iperf -s -p 80
bind failed: Permission denied.

Other ports like 443 works.  
Is it because something is using port 80 already and iperf cannot bind it?

ports 80 and 8080 will be bound to your web traffic, both are standards for HTTP. What are you testing on?

Testing communication over the VPN tunnel.
I can see the server is listening on port 80.
TCP                 LISTENING       4

However cannot test if accessible over the VPN.
PID 4 is "system" and that's pretty much standard config. It's not the browser that's listening on the port; what does the machine you're interrogating do? Web server possibly?

Yes it is a Web server.
Then the server is doing "its duty" - you can't interrogate port 80 or port 8080 because it's constantly in use by the server OS.
