Just set up spork on Windows and it worked like a charm for Cucumber, but when I tried to run spork rspec concurrently, I received the following message:

/Ruby192/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rinda/ring.rb:35:in 'bind': Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted. - bind(2) (Errno::EADDRINUSE)
from /Ruby192/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rinda/ring.rb:35:in initialize' from ring_server.rb:7:innew'
from ring_server.rb:7:in `

This didn't always used to be… I wonder when it changed :S

You can specify a port to use when launching Spork, at least for Rspec.

See the last example here:
