Q: Can't setup UDP socket on port 27500: Address already in use

A: It seems the port is already in use. This can be because of several reasons:

  • Hlstats is already running.
    If you started hlstats via the 'run_hlstats' command, try to locate the '' file, in your scripts dir. If this file is present, it means hlstats is already running.
    You can use './run_hlstats stop' to stop the current hlstats daemon.
  • Some other program is running on that port.
    With linux, you can type 'netstat -a | grep 27500' to see if the port is already open. With 'ps aux | grep hlstats' you can see if hlstats is already running for example
