Network Connection List with FPort v2.0
This section describes a free security protection tool from McAfee called FPort v2.0, which lists all network connections and their programs.
McAfee also offers another free security protection tool called Fport, which helps you to identify unknown open ports and their associated applications.
Fport v2.0 supports Windows NT4, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Fport v2.0 reports all open TCP/IP and UDP ports and maps them to the owning application. This is the same information you would see using the 'netstat -an' command, but it also maps those ports to running processes with the PID, process name and path. Fport can be used to quickly identify unknown open ports and their associated applications.
Here is an example session of Fport v2.0:
C:\>fport FPort v2.0 - TCP/IP Process to Port Mapper Pid Process Port Proto Path 392 svchost -> 135 TCP C:\WINNT\system32\svchost.exe 8 System -> 139 TCP 8 System -> 445 TCP 508 MSTask -> 1025 TCP C:\WINNT\system32\MSTask.exe 392 svchost -> 135 UDP C:\WINNT\system32\svchost.exe 8 System -> 137 UDP 8 System -> 138 UDP 8 System -> 445 UDP 224 lsass -> 500 UDP C:\WINNT\system32\lsass.exe 212 services -> 1026 UDP C:\WINNT\system32\services.exe
