    I downloaded Fport.exe & also TCPView.exe/TCPVcon.exe.

    However, the only one I can get to work is TCPView, which gave me a nice report. I am trying to identify some ports showing up in my firewall log, & thought these tools would help.

    I apparently have to do something I am not doing - I thought I could just execute the .exe software from the downloaded, unzipped folder? I see something flash by, but it's gone & I don't get a report.

    Any help in how to execute these would be appreciated - new user to all of this & also not very experienced obviously.

    THANKS

    In regards to fport....there are a number of ways to accomplish this but I'll list my preferred method.

    1) Copy fport.exe to your System32 folder

    2) Create a batch file with the below contents and name it whatever you wish(launch.bat for example)....and place that file in a folder of your choice.

    Code:
    fport > fport.txt
    notepad.exe fport.txt 
    3) You can either go to where launch.bat is located and select it or place a short-cut on your desktop to that file.

    When you execute the above batch file it should open fport in a cmd box with notepad overlayed and the fport info.

    I think 'netstat -an' in the cmd box does the same , or am i wrong?

    netstat will give port\protocol.

    fport will give port\protocol\pid\process

    There is a other nice freeware utility for that purpose out there called CurrPorts.

    There are by the way alot of nice Freeware tools available on this page.

    Thank you, Bubba, I got the fport to work following your instructions - at last I know what some of these ports are being used for.

    And thank you, Tommy - I copied down & used the CurrPorts also. VERY interesting & should help resolve some things.

    Thanks everyone - this is exactly what I have been looking for, though I may be back asking additional questions on some of these items.

    THANKS!
