PXE Boot Tool ports

Hello All,

Ive recently inherited AOMEI Backuper Tech Plus at a new job. When trying to use the PXE Boot Tool at launch it fails with the "Application initialization failed. It may be caused since the 67, 69, 4011, 8888 ports are being used by another programs..." message. I have confirmed that there is nothing else operating on these ports and there is no firewall restriction. Looking at the logs I see PXE logs for each attempt to launch the tool. Below is what is found in the log minus what it repeats the detecting the interface.

Any suggestions on troubleshooting this issue further? Thanks in advance


  • Again nothing else is operating on these ports on this server. Can you please provide the needed configuration for PXE with AOMEI Backupper with Cisco DHCP?
  • Did you check the items listed in the link?
  • Yes and AGAIN nothing is operating on these ports on the server. Support took 5 days to get back with an unhelpful question for a question and this "Admin" wont answer direct questions either. Poorly supported application all the way around. 
  • Can you try to run AOMEI Image Deploy to see if it works?
