Unblocking port 80

1 min read

Something was using port80 but we were unable determine what it was.  netstat told us port 80 was in use but was "unable to open process" to tell us what was using it.

Running NET stop HTTP helped uncover the culprit: BranchCache service. Killing this service and preventing it from running allowed us to use port 80 again.
