TCP/UDP Port ScanningTool - What is closing a port?
Posted on 2014-02-27
Hello, I just want to say this is a great website. Full of useful knowledge!
I am trying to find a utility, and how to set it up, that will scan TCP/UDP ports that can tell me what process/service that might be closing a port. I was given the ports that I need to monitor:
1824 2063 2613 2910 2938 2939 2941 2942 4941 4942
These ports need to be open to communicate between a print server and another server running Xerox's Equitrac software. The Equitrac software is used for secure printing. When the user scans there card at the printer, it authenticates them to go into their queue and print their document(s). At any given time, the user can scan their card and the scanner will not recognize their card. After we restart the 2 Xerox Equitrac services on the print server, then it will start reading cards again. The server with Equitrac software is 2003 R2 and the printer server is 2008 R2.
The Equitrac engineer feels one or more of the ports may be closing.
I tried using CurrPorts port scanner but not sure if this is a good utility.. And if it is, which server to run it on and how to get it configured. Let me know if I need to provide any further information.
Thank you for your time and assistance!
