Active port ties to process

Is there a program out there like activeports 1.4 that will work with window 7? I would like to see what processes are using what ports and why.


Thanks!

  1. I found process explorer, but i am not sure if or how it can show me what port and bandwidth it is using and what ip it is talking to. My comouter has been trying to contact odd places and I would like to know why.
  2. The only one I know of is Anvir Task Manager, but it's a paid program. Otherwise you might get the same result by combining the info provided by netstat and tasklist commands (see here).

    Yea that would actually work. I think I would have to be watching real time as the process used a port. I guess what i need is something that monitors all port traffic, logs it, and in the log info, identifies which process used what port and to what address it tried to communicate.
  4. I know Anvir Pro can do exactly what you want to do, log all network traffic of a specific process to a file. If you just want to sniff network traffic, you can always try WireShark, it's a packet sniffer tool.

    I’ve been hunting for an Active Ports replacement for Windows 7 for ages. Turns out there was one there all along.
    Open Task Manager and on the Performance tab there is a button that launches “Resource Monitor”. Once open, go to the Network tab and under “TCP Connections” you can view a list of processes and ports – both sortable. Job done – phew!
