CurrPorts

CurrPorts - discover who is connecting to your PC

review by ClifNotes, Aug 2006, permalink

 

I've actually been using CurrPorts for a little over a year. CurrPorts is a stand-alone program that doesn't require any installation process or additional DLLs. In order to start using it, just copy the executable file (cports.exe) to any folder you like, and run it.

 

When you fire up CurrPorts it gives you a customizable view of all internet connections coming into and going out of your PC. This is valuable information when you need to determine if you are hosting spyware, adware, or trojan horses.

Quote from the website

CurrPorts displays the list of all currently opened TCP/IP and UDP ports on your local computer. For each port in the list, information about the process that opened the port is also displayed, including the process name, full path of the process, version information of the process (product name, file description, and so on), the time that the process was created, and the user that created it.

 

In addition, CurrPorts allows you to close unwanted TCP connections, kill the process that opened the ports, and save the TCP/UDP ports information to HTML file , XML file, or to tab-delimited text file.

 

CurrPorts also automatically mark with pink color suspicious TCP/UDP ports owned by unidentified applications (Applications without version information and icons)
