Openhab2 and Homegear Portconflict

I try running Openhab2 and Homegear and investigating a port conflict.

Openhab Forum link

$ sudo netstat -nlp | grep 5353
udp        0      0  *                           391/avahi-daemon: r
udp6       0      0 :::5353                 :::*                                723/java
udp6       0      0 :::5353                 :::*                                391/avahi-daemon: r

Is it possible that homegear needs this avahi-daemon?
the java task is openhab2

Hi @Arsur,

avahi is a network service, see and it comes with Raspbian or most other linux distros by default.

If you don’t need it simply disable/uninstall Avahi. In the meantime I would try to get rid of Java using UDP6:5353…


mhm okay i had another error thought it would be something with homegear, which isnt the case… can be closed
