Port already in use

Sometimes your minerstat application cannot properly communicate with minerstat dashboard as some other application reserved the port 3333 that is needed for communication between your rig, mining client, minerstat software, and minerstat dashboard. If this is the case, you will need to close the application down. To find such applications, you can use the following commands.

CMD (run as Administrator)

netstat -a -b | findstr :3333

Powershell (run as Administrator)

Get-Process -Id (Get-NetTCPConnection -LocalPort 3333).OwningProcess

When port is already in use, mining client usually starts and shows errors, but minerstat application cannot read mining data from it.
