Assuming it's a Windows based system...

The command (run from the command line):

netstat -a

Will show you which ports are in use and the status of those ports.

or run a port scanner from other PC, and it wil tell you which port is in use, and the one that is not showing up means that you can use it.

Hey.

I recommend using this port scanner:

Search for 'SuperScan' and take alook at the screen shot and opinions if you wish.

Fport is a free tool that will show you what programs on your system are opening which ports (both TCP and UDP). You can look at the output and see if you notice any strange programs that don't belong on the machine.
