Warning -> Failed to start: SocketListener , while performing Cross Browser Testing

on Tue Jul 19, 2011 5:50 pm
Hello Everyone,

I have just started learning Selenium. I am trying to use Selenium RC for Cross Browser Testing.
While performing Cross Browser Testing I am getting error " Failed to start: SocketListener0@0.0.0.0:4444" in all the Browsers. Please give me a solution as soon as possible.

Working Environment
Selenium RC 1.0.3 (C#)
Windows 7
IE9, Firefox 5, Safari 5.0.3


C:\seleniumrc\selenium-server-1.0.3>java -jar selenium-server.jar -multiwindow -
htmlsuite "*safariproxy" "http://book.theautomatedtester.co.uk/" "D:\selenium\sa
mples\Sample of Begineers\TSverifytext.html" "D:\selenium\samples\Sample of Begi
neers\Result33.html"

Make sure you have started the selenium server. Selenium Server runs on port 4444.
1) There can be another service which might be blocking this port. Eg skype or some other app.

2) If thats not the case, then selenium server might be already running. Please stop it with the help of following url and then try again.
localhost:4444/selenium-server/driver/?cmd=shutDownSeleniumServer


If this does not work, you can also use defaultselenium class to instantiate selenium. With defaultselenium class you can change the port number on which server is running.

Shutdown PC.. Start after 1 minuet..
By Mistake you might have clicked on .jar file from selenium folder, that may be blocking you.
