Hi Experts,

I've added the bindings to the IIS default site (for the port number 9680-HTTP & 9643-HTTPS). Whenever I go to click on the start button it could not start and run into an error mentioned in the title above.

Screenshots are as follows :

How to resolve the error?

Download a free copy of Microsoft TCP View and it will tell you what process has acquired each port.  If the issue is due to some (other) process having captured that port, this will reveal the culprit.

Hi,

Just a small hint.

Are you using Skype?  If yes please try quitting Skype and start the IIS.

Best Regards
Raghav.

Not using the skype.

The problem is on Server.

After installing the AD FS 2.0 it started to arise the problem.

Do not change the ports in IIS.  If you have only 1 IP on the server, you need to be utilizing Host Names on all site bindings in IIS.

Can you post a view of the site running on your server?

The site is not running due to port is blocked by system pid '4'.

And what is the process name of PID 4?

Have you opened the necessary ports on the Windows Firewall?

OK, again I'll ask... can you post a screen shot from IIS Manager, of the sites running on your server?  A shot of the all the site... please just select the Sites node in the left navigation, you will see a list off everything running in the center console.

The solution is to not use the "All unassigned" IP address binding when you have multiple sites running in IIS.  You can run many sites with a single IP address by selecting the real IP address of the server and using the "Host Name" field in the site binding.

Then you can run multiple sites on port 80 & 443.
