Skype Listens on Port 80

By default, skype grabs a hold on incoming requests on port 80, and 443 (https) presumably as a measure to bust through firewalls.

This causes problems when you’re trying to configure IIS.

Moral: If you’re installing IIS and you have Skype running, you should turn off the option in Skype to listen to incoming requests on port 80 and 443
