BAM FAQs Frequently Asked Questions

I tried to launch BAM, but I received a “listen EACCES: permission denied” error. What’s going on?

BAM is implemented as a local web server; the UI is then accessible over the local network through a web browser so people can interact with their devices while in their escape rooms from a tablet or other portable device.  This requires BAM to listen on a “port” for incoming connections, and the default is port 8080.

Occasionally, you may be running another application on your computer that uses the same port number. If you have another web server or engineering tool that runs on port 8080, please consider closing or reconfiguring it to a different port number before launching BAM.
