Port 80 in use?

PostPosted: 21. May 2008 07:23

I'm trying to install Apache on my Vista box (I know, I know). It's saying port 80 is in use.

I thought at first it could be IIS, but I can't find that on Vista.

I haven't got Skype either (which is meant to be common for hogging port 80).

Apache won't let me start it as a service as it's in use.

I tried Microsoft's PULIST, but I couldn't get that to work on Vista either.

Is there anyway to see what application/service is using which port, if they're only listening? I want to stop it from listening so I can start Apache as a service. I've done this thousands of times on XP...

Completely baffled. :|

Just in case it helps...

I believe Skype uses port 80. No idea how/if the port check would determine this.
