I'd like to know how on windows to determine the number of ports available for use on a computer.
I'd also like to know how to see how many ports are in use at any given time.  I know I can use netstat to list the ports in use, but the output makes it a little inconvenient to count the usage

Thanks

There are 65536 ports available to any TCP stack or PC.

You could try and download IPScanner.exe form sourceforge and that can be set up to give you a more readable list of in use ports and then subtract.

Please note that some anti-virus programs will disable this application as being a hack tool.
