  • Question

  • i need to test if the port is in use i found this but i cant get it to work:

    netstat -an | findstr /RC:":%port% .*LISTENING" && ECHO Port is in use && EXIT 1

    %port% is a var with the port number that user as typed previously when i ask wich port he wants to run the program.

    if port is already in use must show an error and say to enter another port else should continue

  • Hi hugo,

    This question has few relation with Windows Forms issue, I'm moving it to Off topic forum to see if someone can help. But before that, maybe this blog about Command-line view of ports in use would be some of help.

    Best wishes,

  • This thread was moved out of Win Form. Is there another forum that supports batch scripting? What about the Scripting Guys forum?
