Language tool cannot access port8081

To anyone,

I am a complete novice to language tool and when I specify options to access port 8081, the system message responds that it cannot access port 8081 maybe some other application is using that port.

Question: How do I find out what other application is running on port 8081?
Next, if I do find the application, how to allow language tool to access that port
Alternatively, can language tool us port 8080? That may be available.

I am running a Windows 7.0 environment with hopes to plug this application into Tex Studio.


You can set the port under Checking -> Options. Any port that’s not in use should be fine.

Thanks to the person that responded. I have done just that and I have a working language tool.
