    I recently downloaded a program from www.sysinternals.com called tcpview, when i ran it, it seem to work fine, but after a few times it tried to connect the internet and also when i was looking at some the hidden files on my computer i noticed a rewmote desktop connection, which is somehow part of tcpview.

    Has anybody used this programm before, woud like to know,

    thank tom

    A really nice program, a bit like 'Active Ports':- http://www.snapfiles.com/screenshots/activeports.htm

    I run TCPView.exe, but I use version 2.34, rather than 2.4, because for some strange reason the new version will not display all my connections. I've never had this problem before with the program and cannot understand why it happens - but I just can't get it working!

    The connections section of ewido and the command prompt netstat -a both work fine, as did all the earlier versions of TCPView, but not 2.4

    For that reason I would recommend Active Ports rather than TCPView 2.4.

    Topper have you ever noticed a remote desktop connection as part of TCPview, when looking at all the hidden files in windows? I've stated using netstat and port explorer, both very good. Was just a bit worried in case im compromised:(:)

    Thanx T

    No, I've never noticed such a thing.
