Dear jsctechy

You can use TCPView by SysInternals (i.e. Microsoft) is a great tool. or I think you may want to try out netstat.exe, which is typically located at C:\WINNT\system32\netstat.exe .

A help page is available with

netstat -?

Examples are:

netstat -a

Lists all local TCP connections and listening ports together with remote TCP endpoint.

netstat -o

Adds the process ID to the output.

netstat -b

Gives you the name of the executable wich was involved in establising this connection/port.

You will find TCPView more helpful as its GUI and you don't need to install.
You can download from FTP - live.sysinternals.com
