Failed to connect to HTTP on port 80: [Errno 10013] An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions

Is the error I got. I was searching high and low and didn't quite find my exact problem. There is of course the IIS you can disable but not my same problem. I had my plexconnect working and used it for days until one day I received the above error. I realized after some troubleshooting I had created an incoming connection for a VPN connection in the adapter settings under Network Connections.

SOLUTION for me was to disable/delete this incoming connection. The moment I did this plexconnect booted right up with not issues.

I felt obligated to write this to let others know of a different fix to a different suspect causing the same type issue
