Troubleshooting client/server connectivity

Hi

I have an application, App1, running on Windows 2008 Server, Server1.
I also have client, Client1 on 192.168.1.1,  trying to access this app who keeps getting a 'server timeout' error.

The client is trying to connect to Server1 on port 500 (example).

The client can't ping Server1, and also telnet Server1 on port 500. But I was wondering if there was any command I could run on the server to show it had accepted a connection from the client on port 500.

I've heard of Netstat etc, but the server is accepting connections from thousands of different IP addresses. Is there a way to filter Netstat to show that there was an open connection from 192.168.1.1 on port 500?

Use this to get things straightened out on your network. It's very difficult for us to have visibility but you can with this:

CurPorts (www.nirsoft.net/utils/cports.html) is an easy-to-use tool for real-time observing open and listening ports, like netstat does, but it can also log ports based on a filter.
Another useful tool is Process Monitor (www.sysinternals.com), which can do much more than just logging TCP/UDP connections, again based on filter conditions.

So you do not want to use another tool? Well, you can use netstat and build-in commands then - but keep in mind that you can't see whether that connection has been open in the past, but isn't anymore:
    netstat -n | find "192.168.1.1" | find ":500 "
