I have communigate Pro running on SuSE 8.0 behind ipCop 1.3 firewall.

One problem is that communigate complains that IMAP fails to start because port 143 is in use by something else.

I've removed all mail programs from the system.

How can I tell what process is using the port?

Thanks for any direction.

port 143 is your used by your existing imap server which runs on port 143

stop your imap server and then start communigate pro again

to stop your imap server in suse
try typing the following in a command window

/etc/rc.d/init.d/imapd stop
then type
chkconfig --level 345 imap stop

im not exactly sure if the first command will work because i dont run suse but i have tried it before

If your distro has lsof, you can use this command:

lsof -nPi
