Error: listen EADDRNOTAVAIL: address not available

When I start node-red it wont run it gives me this error:

25 Jul 10:19:14 - [info] Server now running at
25 Jul 10:19:14 - [info] Starting flows
25 Jul 10:19:15 - [info] Started flows
25 Jul 10:19:15 - [red] Uncaught Exception:
25 Jul 10:19:15 - Error: listen EADDRNOTAVAIL: address not available
at Server.setupListenHandle [as _listen2] (net.js:1299:21)
at listenInCluster (net.js:1364:12)
at doListen (net.js:1501:7)
at processTicksAndRejections (internal/process/task_queues.js:85:21)

It started doing this after I used the modbus sever node.



Looks like a bug that should be reported with the modbus node - it should never cause a crash like that.

You can start Node-RED in safe mode using node-red --safe. That will start the runtime without running the flows. You'll be able to edit them and remove/fix the modbus configuration.
