[FFmpeg-user] RTP streaming and port blocking

I'm using the following command to stream

ffmpeg -re -f alsa -ac 1 -ar 8000 -i hw:1 -f rtp rtp://

when the streaming starts, ffmpeg blocks the port 9000. Hence I can't use
any other applications to listen on 9000. I have a need where i need to
write and listen on the same port simultaniously.

Can someone please tell me how to make ffmpeg not to block the port?
