Docker error "Ports are not available" on Windows 10

Categories Tags

Windows 10 can sometimes hog ports and sockets preventing us from using them with services like docker. This renders error like this

docker : Error response from daemon: Ports are not available: listen tcp 0.0.0.0:1433: bind: 
An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions. At line:1 char:1 + docker start sqlexpress + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (Error response ...ss permissions.:String) [], RemoteException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NativeCommandError Error: failed to start containers: sqlexpress

Stopping winnat

To fix this you must temporarily disable the winnat service, this is simply done by running this command (must be run as administrator)

net stop winnat

Start your docker services and start winnat again

net start winnat

Enjoy
