Trying to run a webserver on my XP Boxes and the server keeps telling me port 80 is blocked. I have XP firewall disabled and i'm not running anything crazy.

Any idea what would cause this?

Oh I get that a lot only on my router...

So my guestimation would be that its the web server software...

You probably have the built-in IIS enabled, and the other server can't open the port 80 because it's already in use. Have you tried http://localhost yet? If it comes with something then IIS is running on your computer.

Open Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Internet Information Services and expand Web Sites. Select the default website and right-click for options to Start/Stop. If it's there, then try stop and the other server software.

Ah yes, Skype is the culprit. Thanks MF.
