Here is the instruction:

Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.

Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
netstat -aon | find ":4125"


I have seen this before but felt too stupid too ask.  This time, just call me "STUPID"

How do I type that symbol between   -aon    and    find ????

It's referred to as the "pipe" symbol.

On a US 101 keyboard the pipe should be available via Shift + \ "backslash".

And if you get stuck with odd keyboard.... Hold down Alt and type 124 on the numeric keypad = it's ASCII code.
