Error: “Unable to Bind port 80, port may be in use or user needs net_privaddr privilege”

My Notes server is running on a small XP machine. Notes 7.x and 8.02 worked fine. Upgradring to 8.5 gave me this error message: “Unable to Bind port 80, port may be in use or user needs net_privaddr privilege” when trying to start the HTTP process.
Problem caused by the antivirus. Both AVG and AVAST made the Domino 8.5 HTTP task fail – but it works with COMODO ..

  1. ESET NOD32 also did the same… it took me a while to work it out. You need to add the nhttp.exe file under web browsers in configuration and place a cross against it to exclude it from checking.

  2. Also got the skype issue and the decribed AVG one as well:

    For Skype issue simply change Port in the settings menue, in AVG I disabled the “Active Surf-Shield”. That works quite well for me.

  3. I happened to run into this problem, and found the solution with AVG, at least. Under the Tools – Advanced Settings, expand the Web Shield section, click on Web protection, and remove 80 from the list of Ports to be scanned. Works like a charm.

  4. I had this problem with ESET NOD32. I managed to work around it by removing port 80 fom the ports being scanned in the same way as Ben described with AVG.
