Question:

Do you have any idea what I could do to get around the following error that is generated by Chilkat DLL?  I have verified that I can run PHP scripts (i.e., version()) through the port 3017 in localhost, so IIS and PHP are configured properly.  The lcUrl = loOauth2.StartAuth() function call kicks up the WSAEACCESS error.  I can see with netstat that port 3017 is listening, and I have tried temporarily disabling any virus software and windows firewall, and I made sure our Cisco firewall hardware is configured to allow port 3017 communications.

This is the error:

Answer:

Port 3017 was being used by some system service, but 3018 worked, and I got the access token.
