If this is a port conflict (and you're running Tomcat) then you can change the port in the server.xml file in the conf directory. Is there any conflicting software running on the same machine? Do you have Windows firewall running?

I've been searching for port conflicts. The best I can come up with is the McAfee firewall that is running. I do have other Tomcat/APache servers on this machine that run without issue. I've stopped them to check for conflict but get the same message. The only place I find a '' binding is in the nuxeo.conf file. I changed that to with no change in the msg.

Sorry, too quick on the mouse - this is not an answer…

Did you try and change the port on Nuxeo to 8081 or something other than default 8080? Same message?

Success. Closed everything, restart laptop (this is just evaluation), edited nuxeo.conf to have as binding. Server started up. Must have been a cached copy of some config file.

Thanks for your help.
