Issues adding my servers

I run four KF2 servers on the same dedicated server. I was able to successfully add one of the four servers but after that it throws an error saying "A server with that ip/query_port already exists" even though I specified the appropriate listen ports. Would my servers have different query ports if they're on the same server?

Here are my servers:

72.5.195.184:7767
72.5.195.184:7777 (Added Successfully)
72.5.195.184:7787
72.5.195.184:7797

Any help would be appreciated!

Yes, you would need different query ports for each server. It would be impossible for GT to scan them all on the same port.
I am retired from GameTracker after 11 years and will not be responsive for support requests.

Understood. Any idea how to change the query port? I dug through the config files bit couldn't seem to find it.

Check any server.bat files, also there WILL be a port number in a config file somewhere, make sure you also forward all the new ports in your router and allow the programmes through your firewall. And YES each instance of the game server needs it's own ports. How else are your players going to be able to differentiate or choose which server to play on? )

As of right now players have no issues whatsoever playing on my servers. Each server has it's own web port and game port. I am not sure what all uses the query port but it doesn't seem to be necessary for the servers to work - just for Gametracker to track them.
