    Hi all hope Ive posted this in right section.

    I did a netstat on my windows 7 PC in the foreign address section I get established "pegasus :61086" and further down "ep-reverse http" established

    My question is this anything to be concerned about?

    thanks for all your help.

    You could try netstat -a -b to see what process (if any) is involved.

    cheers for the reply MrBrian:)

    I tried as suggested and doesn't come up with anything. Im a tech newbie but I find it a bizarre name pegasus :61086

    Is the 61086 the port number? I cant even find that port doing a google search, It seems to open when I have utorrent running.

    Any ideas from your knowledge of experience Brian what it could be anything to be worried about?


    thanks alot for any reply's to satisfy my curiosity:)

    You're welcome :).

    61086 is the port number. I think pegasus might be the name of your computer. If this port is only open when utorrent is running, then you probably have nothing to worry about. You could try using CurrPorts and/or CrowdInspect to see what's going on. If that doesn't help, there are some more advanced programs I could recommend.

    Thanks alot for your replys MrBrian.

    After running Currports,turns out that its Utorrent and linked to Whatbox.ca ,which makes sense to Me as my torrent site has just introduced an ssl tracker and storage.

    didn't know about Currports what a valuable little program!

    Thanks again for your time and help in pointing me in the right direction appreciate it:)
