How can I quickly find listening/open ports on my computer?

You can use the NETSTAT command to quickly see all the used and listening ports on your computer. Note it is not a complete substitute for a port scanning tool. If you’d like to have your computer remotely scanned for open ports use our Security Scan instead.

To see a list of listening ports, open Command Prompt and type:

C:\> netstat -an |find /i “listening”

You can change “listening” to “established” to see what ports your computer actually communicates with.

In Windos XP and Win2k3 Server you can use the -O switch with the NETSTAT command to also get a list of all the owning process ID associated with each connection:

C:\> netstat -ao |find /i “listening”

To see all open, closing, established and listening ports, simply use:

C:\> netstat -a (or netstat -ao in XP/Win2k3)

You can also make the netstat command refresh periodically by adding a number of seconds at the end, for example, to make it refresh every 5 seconds, use something like:

C:\> netstat -an 5

You can see process identifiers using the following command at the command prompt: tasklist and tasklist /svc
