    Port Blocked and I have no idea how to unblock it


    I need port 80 for some software I have and for it to work properly it specifically needs to use port 80. So I went into Command Prompt and found that port 80 was being taken up by PID: 4. So I get on task manager to look up what PID: 4 is and it is my "system" I'm not even 100% sure what this means. I'm assuming my system applications are running in port 80? I don't know I'm just hoping you guys have a way for me to free up port 80 for my software.

    Thanks

    Caelaiden, I believe that port 80 is where your built in web server is located.

    Are you trying to install a webserver?

    What software are your using that requires port 80 to be open? Usually only web servers require this.
    Where do you see that port 80 is blocked?

    Edit: By default the firewall will block all ports from outside access and your ISP may also be blocking port 80.
