The consensus says to use the freeware utility "lsof". This utility find out
what processes are holding the open-port. The usage is as follow: lsof -i
Thanks for numerous help.

Subject: Kill a occupied port
I am in the midst of reconfiguring a web server. After the uninstall, I
notice in netstat -a that the port 80 for the web server is still being
occupied. I can not rebuild the web server since the port is still opened.
Is there a way to clear the port without rebooting the machine since I have
users still working on that server?
