Application error Event ID: 599696846

When trying to start the Hurricane Server Receiver service it may fail and report a CLR exception error in the Windows event log with event id 599696846. In addition the system.log file will report the error "Could not accept connections on {PORT#}" Error #10048

This error occurs when another SMTP server is running and using the same IP and port for incoming email.

If you have problems finding the application/server using the port you can use the netstat.exe command line tool that is shipped with the Windows operation system.

Issuing the below command will display active TCP connections and the process that owns them.


🚧Version and later will no longer cause a CLR exception

It will only output the error to the log file and alert system. Please run the setup.exe file from the bin directory to upgrade your software.
