I have an odd situation: basically, when I run JBOSS on Windows 7 pro (after directly downloading it from the JBOSS site), I am no longer able to browse the web. Specifically, only IE works but other browsers (FF, Chrome) do not.

Post 80 is not blocked by an process. What steps can I do to diagnose the problem?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Any error messages? – Turbo J Jul 7 '11 at 9:07
any proxy setting on your FF and Chrome ? – chocripple Jul 7 '11 at 9:10
yes, fixing the proxy settings (turning proxies off) in FF and Chrome works (feel free to answer the question) – Christek Jul 7 '11 at 9:42
Which JBOSS software do you mean? My search results showed me a whole lot of software, provided by the JBoss company. – Michael K Jul 7 '11 at 10:02

JBoss consumes about 6-10 ports and port 80 isn't used unless you specifically configured it to do so. You can probably identify the ports that Jboss is using by running this command at a dos prompt: "netstat -anb" .

When running JBoss, it is impossible that it would prevent your browser to work unless your browser was configured for a local proxy on one of the ports that JBoss is using.
