  • The solution is use another port you got over 64,000 of them above 1024 to choose from. You can find out what software is running on the machine that is listening on port 8080 with a tool like Active Ports or CurPorts, and you can terminate the program listening on port 8080 and not let it run.

    You might have malware running on the machine that is listening on port 8080 and you don't know it.
