Web PVR: "Unable to create server socket: Permission denied" error on startup
#1
Hello there,

I'm running Windows 10 Pro and I keep it up to date.

I'm running the latest version of get_iplayer 3.01.0.

I've been using get_iplayer for a long time without any problems at all but today the Web PVR Manager wouldn't open in any browser. I get...

"This site cannot be reached. localhost refused to connect"

and...

"ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED"

I've checked for a problem with my internet connection but there isn't one.

I tried reinstalling get_iplayer but this hasn't solved the problem.

Looking at the get_iplayer cli I get the following...

Unable to create server socket: Permission denied at C:\Program Files (x86)\get_iplayer\get_iplayer.cgi line 272

I'm a novice with cgi scripts so can't work out why this has suddenly started to happen.

I'm not using a VPN and I'm in the UK.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.
