DSS Node RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm having the problem below in an attempt to run my first program! I have read the some answers to the same question, but I can't figure out how to fixed it

    "Whenever I try , like the VPL robotics tutorials, as soon as I click "Run", I get an error saying " Could not start the DSS node. Please check if there is another DSS node already running on the system."

    Regards,

    Stephen

  • This likely means there is some process using the same port (e.g. 50000). Usually this means, as the error says, that there is another DSS host already running. Maybe run task manager and look for dsshost32.exe. It could also be some some other process using the port. From a DSS command prompt, try running httpreserve to ensure you can access the port you want. Or, switch to using another port (in VPL, that's under Run > Port Settings).

    Hope that helps!
