and there is definately no process listening on port 3389.

Looks pretty good .. so far ..

That doesn’t mean nothing is listening on 3689. Check your /etc/services and see if there is a service name defined for 3689 and check to see if something is listening by that. It will show up by service name rather than port if there is a service name defined.

If you are getting EADDRINUSE, it’s because something is listening on that port. Guaranteed. Nothing else can cause that.

So double-check… Something else is grabbing it.
