Password manager process using port 10000 at IP address (localhost)

Go to solution Solved by Flood and Flood's wife,

Recommended Posts

I ran into an issue yesterday where I could not start an application that uses the port 10000 at the IP address 

It turns out this port is used by a process called kpm.exe (Kaspersky Password Manager).

Is the use of the port 10000 by KPM intentional and is it necessary?

I am running KPM (t) / 1639410386_7112 / 1.0.523.0-

on Windows 10.

@Berny Thanks. I am not sure how this helps me though.  I don’t have the Kaspersky Firewall. I only have the Password Manager.  In other words, PM is the only Kaspersky application I have installed on my system.

Hello @HHUB

Also: on our systems (x 4), KPM (t) / 1639410386_7112 / 1.0.523.0-, is as follows



(ioo) looks like 10000 is assigned to (as a loopback to a default route), by design.

@Berny in the blocked application, the port is configurable.  So, I solved the problem by changing the port assignment in the blocked app.  Everything is working fine now.  My questions are:

  1.  Does KPM really need to use the address/port?
  2. If it does, should the port be also configurable in KPM? (If the other app was not configurable, I would have been in trouble.)

As suggested by another poster, I have already asked the Kaspersky Tech Support these questions. They are supposed get back to me via email.  I will post their response here.

@HHUB Thank you for your feedback.

The action you took in your application is a good move 👍

The port settings are not configurable in KPM which means that the application is programmed like this.

Thank you for posting the comments  from Kaspersky Tech Support ?
