Troubleshooting - Getting Error Unable to Bind to Specified IP Address

Problem Description:

QODBC stopped working and I get IP errors. All fixes that I can find on support pages requires that QRemote Server is started. QRemote Server will not start.

I get the error "Unable to Bind to Specified IP Address".





1) Try to change IP configuration on QRemote Server. Please change it to default IP Address & Port

You can change it from File >> Setting >> Advanced Tab >> Select IP Address Configuration & Port Configuration to "Default".



Please restart QRemoteServer after changing IP Address & Port. The change will affect after the restart of QRemoteServer.

2) Make sure IP address is correct and port is available and not blocked by any other application.

3) Exit/Quit from QRemoteServer.  Navigate to File >> Exit


4) Start QRemote Server from the Windows Start menu.

5) Make sure QRemoteServer is running at specified IP Address & Port. You can find QRemoteServer from the system tray.


Please note down the IP Address.

I am getting this error after activating a trial of the full QODBC driver. I am not seeing any instances of QRemote.exe running. Should a reboot of the system be required?
