Does anyone know how I can determine which application or task is producing network traffic through my LAN card?
I have a Win XP system which is showing the network icon in the system tray. The icons are continuously flashing indicating network send and receive however I have no obvious application that should be producing this traffic.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Download a free firewall like Sygate. When you install it, it will prompt you when an application is trying to access the network and it will tell you the name of the application.

Johnwill: Thanks for your reply. Netstat -a does not tell me which processes are actually sending and receiving traffic at the time.

Monstrous: Thank you. It looks like I have no other option but to install a firewall.
