    Hello,
    I am trying to find a good program that can monitor ports and show me which are open and where my TCP/IP is currently connected to. Can any of you recommend a good one?

    netstat shows you active connections and pots listening on your system.

    netstat -no will show you PID if you want to try and figure out which process is connected on what port.

    Systernals has a nice Winders app called "TCPVIEW" that gives you a GUI for this. It also give you the ability to kill a PID or close it's connection (much like the Unix kill command)
