    Chapter 3 - node auth 8090

    I have copied the code from page 53 as follows:

    Code JavaScript:
    var dnode = require('dnode');
    dnode(function(remote, conn) {
    	this.auth = function(user, pass, cb) {
    		var users = {
    			foo: 'bar'
    		var p = users[user];
    		if (p === pass) cb(null, 'AUTHORIZED!');
    		else cb('REMOTE ACCESS DENIED');

    When I run the code as instructed node auth 8090 I get the following error

    throw arguments[1]; // Unhandled 'error' event
    Error: listen EADDRINUSE
    at errnoException (net.js:769:11)
    at Server._listen2 (net.js:909:14)
    at listen (net.js:936:10)

    at Module.load (module.js:356:32)
    at Function.Module._load (module.js:312:12)

    What am I doing wrong?

    >> I restarted terminal and this code is now working.

    The following error message

    Error: listen EADDRINUSE

    Means that the port is already being used. Likely the program was started somewhere else and not terminated correctly
