Unable to Connect: Bind Failed on Local Address

To use our apps and configurations, please sign up for an ExpressVPN account first.

If you see the following error message in your connection log:

Tue Sep 1 22:17:22 2015 MANAGEMENT: Socket bind failed on local address Address already in use

It is likely that the port needed for the connection attempt to the server location is not responding or is being used by another process. To solve the issue:

Restart your machine. After that, launch ExpressVPN again and connect to a server location.



If you are still encountering issues, change to a different VPN protocol and then connect to a different server location.
