In addition to TCPView, you can also take a look at Processexplorer. This tool is a kind of a swiss knife.

When you start processexplorer, you will see a list of all running processes in your system. The services are below a process called service.exe. There you will see many svchost.exe and other things, but the most important is that if you right click on one, check Properties, and choose the TCP/IP sheet. There you will see something like the following picture:

I recommend you tcpview from Sysinternals. Although its very basic, I think it is very handy.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

the netstat command can help:

"netstat -ano" will list all UDP/TCP active/listening ports.


A more thorough method would be to install a packet monitoring tool such as WireShark on the server containing the services you want to monitor.

Find out what port is associated with the particular service, start the monitor, and limit the filter to only show connections to that port.

netstat gives you the list of ports where a connection exists and the remote host connecting to it.

If you know the port the service is listening "netstat -n" gives you the IP-address that connect to it.

With TCPView you can see the connections that service has opened. When you run TCPView, in the ProcessName column, you see processes names. The services are those whose name is svchost (the service host process). In order to know exactly which service is inside that host, right click over any svchost.exe and click on Properties and check the command line to find your service.
