Microsoft’s descriptive errors is 0x8ffe2740 when trying to start an FTP or Web Server from the IIS Administration module. The error itself means that there is a port conflict with another service.
Unexpected Error 0x8ffe2740 FtpThis is a relatively easy diagnosis, as you should already know what ports your unexpected error occurred ftp or web servers use. Use the netstat command in the command console to find out what program is using unexpected error -50 mac a particular TCP port. Replace the ## with the port you wish to test. This works on Windows Server 2003 and 2008. netstat -anop TCP|find ":##" The above command will return a PID (process
Dep0001 Unexpected ErrorID). You will need to match that to a running program or service. Type the following command: tasklist /SVC /FI "PID eq ####" Here is an example using port 21. In this example you can see the "ftpsvc" service is using port 21 through svchost.exe - which is normal. In a client's machine, it was MSUpdate2.exe that was using port 21 - a piece of malware using an FTP server to serve

While i am seeing IIS window, the Default web site is in stop mode. when i am ready to start IIS. It shows "Unexpected error 0x8ffe2740 occurred" Finally, I discovered that its caused by Skype. It listens to port 80 for incoming call. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12545032/unexpected-error-0x8ffe2740-occurred-in-iis Now, most of the time IIS starts before Skype starts. So IIS works but if you restart IIS or try to start IIS after Skype is started then you will get this error message. For this, I changed my Skype settings Skype File-> Options -> Connection Uncheck Use Port 80 as an alternative for incoming connections. But even though i am unable to start my IIS. Please help me some one.. Thanks. asp.net iis share|improve this question asked Sep 22 '12 at 15:19 user1622824 356 add a comment| 2 Answers 2 active oldest votes up vote 1 down vote I had a similar problem and I solve it using a firewall not allowing skype to do anything else more than open the ports to talk or chat. Restart IIS after this or restart computer. Additionally you can check for other programs like teamViewer, that also try to use port 80. May be a little bit hard to check ports on windows xp, xampp has a program to check ports that is very handy for this kind of things. I hope this can be useful to your problem. share

In this specific case, another application in your system (e.g. Skype, etc.) might be using port 80 which doesn't allow error 0x8ffe2740 occurred IIS to start. Do a TCP port trace using an utility (netstat Windows system command is good enough: netstat -a -b) and find which application is the cause. Close it, then start IIS again.
