I have an application server, Server1, running on Windows 2008 Server. I have clients from many subnets connecting to it, some are on the same LAN, some are connecting across the WAN.
We often have connectivity issues so I was looking for a program/function that told me whether the server had actually recvd the connection from the client and what state it was in. I figured on Netstat but then came across TCPView.
I had some questions I was hoping someone could assist me with:

2. If I had a suspect connection from 192.168.2.123 and wanted to close this, what's the best way to do this?
3. I see there are connection states of:
Does anyone have a handy link to explain what these mean?
