    Question port listening, which program?

    using win OS. by using port scanners you are able to scan your puter for ports with all state, established, listening, etc... is there a way to find out which program or service that is using these ports? tq

    Well, nmap will tell you the name of the service (yes, I don't think nmap has been ported to windows, but please get acces to a *nix box if you want to do this kind of stuff). Plus the web has some lists to help you, like: bad service list and Port guide.

    Happy reading (and happy linux installing

    Nmap is available for Windows NT and will probably run under other Win versions aswell .

    You can find the NmapNT page at eEye Digital Security, it lacks some of the good features found when running under a *nix box, but it's a quite good port scanner.

    NMAP will only tell you what ports are open, not what services are using the port. If it is a standard RFC defined port, (21, 23, 25, etc.) then it is easy. Otherwise, I do not know of a way to find out other than stopping services one-by-one until the port is closed.

    Use SuperScan and ShadowScan if you wanted to know deamons and services, and FTP soft
    and you must learn a lot, and visit www.xatrix.org if you want to be informed...
