Identify activity on Outgoing Ports (Ports for Remote Management of Windows Server 2008 Firewall)

Hello,

We have a third party made application with very little documentation on it. The application manages things on a remote/target host like Hyper-V VMs, adds VMs, virtual disk service, and some other things. If I turn off firewall on the target server and it all works, otherwise not. I've noticed different items are managed by different ports. My question:
Is there a simple application I can run on the host server so that when I use the application it shows me what outgoing ports are being used or have activity on them so I can just enable them on the target host?

with netstat you can see open ports but you dont see by what application is port used..
If you want to see what port is used by application try great TCP view program
