Re: [BUG] ssh_bind_listen() does not fail in windows when port is in use

Ok, but in case of a restart, you have to wait quite a while.

I don't know what's the equivalent of lock files in Windows. But maybe
you wrap it as a service - then you can't start it twice at least. But
still, another application could open a socket for the same address /
port of course...
