Hi,

1.
There's derned near two pages of
output, from this command.

Is there some single source, where
I can track down what these mysteries
mean ?

2.
Several of the foreign addresses,
are star-colon-star (*:*).
Any idea what these are ?

Thanks,
Ken .

Not sure this article applies to XP, but it is probably worth a look.

Sounds like you have too many open ports.

netstat

-a
Displays all active TCP connections and the TCP and UDP ports on which the
computer is listening.

-o
Displays active TCP connections and includes the process ID (PID) for each
connection. You can find the application based on the PID on the Processes
tab in Windows Task Manager.

Hi,

Thank-you.
Actually I made a mistake; I ran
the utility twice, and was counting the
output of both passes.
(Oops.)

Still, there's more than one screen
full, and that seems excessive.

I'll check out y'alls links, and go
from there.

Thanks,
Ken .

Hi,

Mystical stuff.
It'd help, if I could echo the
output to my printer, but it's on
USB001, and I can't seem to get anything
from a DOS window to print.
I've used:
LPT1(0,1,2,3),
COM3(4)
PRN,
USB001,

And the best, it does, is process
the command, and do nothing.
Sometimes it locks up the window,
and I have to kill it.

How does it, I - to git the printer
werkun, from a DOSit winnner ?

Thanks,
Ken .

Ken,

Copy from command prompt window, paste into Notepad and print from there.

To copy text from a command prompt window

1. Open Command Prompt.
2. Right-click the title bar of the command prompt window, point to Edit,
and then click Mark.
3. Click the beginning of the text you want to copy.
4. Press and hold down the SHIFT key, and then click the end of the text
you want to copy (or you can click and drag the cursor to select the text).
5. Right-click the title bar, point to Edit, and then click Copy.

Command Prompt Copy & Paste

This will set the QuickEdit Mode and the Insert Mode.

Right click the command prompt window's title bar.
Click Defaults.
Click on the Options tab.
Place a check mark in both of these:
QuickEdit Mode
Insert Mode
Click OK.

QuickEdit Mode
[[Enables you to use a pointing device (mouse) to cut and paste, bypassing
the Edit menu.]]
This option provides a fast, easy way to copy text from (and paste text
into) Command Prompt windows with a mouse. You can highlight text with a
mouse and use the Enter key to copy the highlighted test to the Windows
Clipboard.

Insert Mode
[[Enables you to insert text at the cursor. If this is not selected, text
that is typed at the cursor replaces existing text.]]
This option (on by default) allows you to insert text at the cursor
position. You can right click and paste.

Hi,

Back onto this problem ...

HEY !
Things are supposed to be
impossible, in Windows XP; not just
klugey - this worked !

Thank-you; now I can get out the
hi-liter, and my fine point margin
mess-er and make sense of all this.

Thank-you,
Ken .
