How can I determine which port a program is running on?  I did a vulnerability scan on one of my servers and port 5250 is open.  This is a port used by various trojans.  I would like to see what program or service is using this port...........

On a 2003 server, run the following command: netstat -ano.  This will give you the port# and the Process ID of the .exe or service that is using it.  You can then look in Task Manager to determine which process corresponds to that Process ID.

You can use utilities here:

You will find all kinds of useful utilities here for troubleshooting.

netstat -ano will do that as well but the sysinternals utilities give you a graphical view if you are not a "Command Line" kind of person ;-)

And i guess when you find a rouge process you could use:

TASKKILL /PID <program ID>

Thanks for both of your suggestions.  I used the 'netstat -ano' commmand some time ago, however, I forgot the syntax.  Also, I used the Sysinternals utilities in the past, however, it's been awhile.  This refreshed my memory and I'm now back on track.

Thanks!
