Error when starting the Agent


I am seeing this error when I am trying to start the TestProject Agent but after some time it starts and I am able to work on it but wanted to know the reason for this error as I have not seen this before.


Hello rsood,
It look likes one or more application or services on your machine is using port 8585,
This port is used by the agent for communication.
Next time you encounter this error try to use this command in your CMD:

netstat -aon | findstr 8585

You will get the PID of the service that is occupying port 8585, than you can terminate it like so:

taskkill /pid 1100 /f
(1100 is this case change it to the PID you got)

It should look like this:
