how to find PORT number of a particular program through command prompt

Can anyone please tell me where I can find a command that shows what PORT number a particular program utilizes from "command prompt"?  I tried doing it from the C drive program files, but it does not work and have no idea how to do it from a command prompt.
thank you.

The port or ports a program uses is dependant on the services it uses. There is no easy way to determine this but the netstat program may reveal some useful info see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/281336

Hi,

From the command prompt using netstat and that -b switch will show the process PID and name for listening and active connections. An example from the cmd line would look something like: "C:\>netstat -anb".

Alternatively there is a utility called TcpView which gives listening sockets and process names with them in a easy to view list that also automatically updates itself. You can view and download the program here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Networking/TcpView.mspx

Hope this helps!

netstat -ab | find "LISTENING" <-- will show you what process ID is listening on a port.

netstat -ab will show all active ports and associated processes.

"netstat -b"

you might like "netstat -bn" better.
