    Good Morning,

    Could anybody recommend a small, freeware program that displays what ports are currently open on my computer and what program(s) are currently using those ports? Also the option to close any ports selected would be helpful/

    Thanks

    -J

    Thanks CrazyM, this is by far the best and most featured port explorer I have come across.

    Do you know how to get it working on a XP SP2 machine?

    What services, and drivers need to be enabled for it to log active ports?

    Thanks.

    Only Symantec does, none of the other anti virus detects it as a virus including Avast and Kaspersky.
     
  10. I don't think they mean it is a virus/trojan per se

    but that it can be used by malware..to terminate programs

    My vote is for Tcpview. Thre may be other ones that show more information, but tcpview is fairly easy to understand and the use of color is helpful. It does not install any drivers on your system.

    Thanks for the suggestions! Currently I'm using TCP/View and its a great little program, using limited resources.

    Thanks

    You may also be interested in this little gem, WinDump 3.8.3 beta (WinPcap required). It isn't a port viewer per se, but a nice, simple, companion to it.

    EDIT: Well, I guess it is a port viewer, but without a GUI. :D

    I give my vote to TCPview also. I too tried Vision and could not get the port mapper to work in XP SP2.

    And what about the excellent Port Explorer from Diamondcs ? ;)

    See dedicated forum here at the Wilders-board.

    (it's not free).
