I have a service that uses a certain port and it is for TCP and runs fine in windows xp but starts and immediately stops in server 2003. when launched in server 2003 i get a dialog box that says
The service started but stopped because it had nothing to do.
This is for an instant messenger program o the service would need to be running all the time. What would allow a service to keep running in xp and stop it on server 2003. i have also added exceptions through the firewall for the program and the port even though the IM is local network only. any ideas?
