    side, the storage server, and on the other side, agents in charge of
    collecting data. Independent modules such as visualization, complex
    alarms, or trends analysis make use of the data stored in the database.

    system to a halt with its load.

    4. FPortNG 1.33

    Platforms: Windows 2000
    Summary:

    fport reports all open TCP/IP and UDP ports and maps them to the owning
    application.

    fport requires the usage of psapi.dll. On Windows NT, psapi.dll must be in
    the same dir, or path, as fport. For Windows 2000, this is not the case,
    since the system contains the .dll.

    The program contains five (5) switches that allow you to sort by
    application, process ID, application path, port, and display help.

    There is a few reasons why I posted the "whole damn thing". Its only to save time for those not already familiar with these tools, they can read about the tools before they decide if they are interested of them or not.

    I dont know about you "anonymous" but I prefer to read about new tools before I give them a try and start download them, especially if I have a slow connection to the Internet. This way I can decide if they dont suit me or if I badly want to give them a try.
