How to re-open already opened port


Recommended Posts

Having two apps listening on the same port, on the same IP,

would create a routing problem, so it is blocked by the OS.

If both responds, who does first would be unpredictable,

and it's meant to be a one-on-one setup like in monogamy.


But you can add another network card/IP address on the

same box, if that helps you.


That way you can broadcast to both apps, on the same port

but different IP, if that was the goal. Like having two girls,

but in different rooms. You can't have two open ports in one

single room...only creates problems....just common sense :)
