If you really care you will read this for your sake in your computers TO"
Warning do not install this software it has a Trojan built into it and will allow the hacker direct access to your computer take it from me I know. the virus File names: Aports.exeThis threat is a stand-alone application, does not drop files, and does not modify the registry. This hack tool displays a Graphical User Interface (GUI) showing the processes and applications as they are mapped to port numbers. Also, it shows the IP address of the user accessing open ports.The publisher also offers an API for a fee. Aports.exe is freeware in its GUI form

I have not tested it myself. If you want programs that do similar functions like this try tcpview etc ..

I wouldn't be too concerned......it is available from Tucows and at least two other reputable shareware sites........all of whom do a through av scan of all software before they post it for download.......if you are still worried....download the file, unopened and then scan it with your desktop a/v (you are of course using a good daily-updated a/v, aren’t you) before installing it.

Absolutely I do not beleive this is a trojan or other wise. I have ran serveral anti virus scanners on the aports.exe and it comes up clean every time.
