Hi elegal,
Finding out what Ports are open

TO find out what ports are open/exposed do the following

Start >Run >type "cmd" {enter}
At the command line type "netstat -a" {enter}

The list displayed shows "Listening ports" and established "Who is on the other end" connections to yout computer.

WARNING
This is a list of common Trojan/Backdoor Port numbers

Who is listening? Use this syntax: netstat -an |find /i "listening"
Save who is listening to a text file: netstat -an |find /i "listening" > c:\openports.txt
Who is established? Use this syntax: netstat -an |find /i "established"


Note: In Windows XP, you can type NETSTAT -O to get a list of all the owning process ID associated with each connection: netstat -ao |find /i "listening"


*****Pulist*****

You can use PULIST from the W2K Resource Kit to find the PID and see what process uses it and who started it. For example, you found out that your computer had an open connection to a remote IP address on TCP port 80, and you don't have any Internet Explorer or other browser windows open. You want to find out what process is using that session.
