better tool than netstat

Posted on

QUESTION :

OS: Windows server/ Windows XP

Is there any port scan tool that can do what netstat does and also has a filter feature, so that unnecessary connections can be hidden?

ANSWER :

Another alternative is CurrPorts : Monitoring TCP/IP network connections on Windows

You could also just pipe the output of netstat into find e.g.

netstat -n | find "10.0."
netstat | find /I "pcname"
netstat | find "ESTABLSIHED" 

Sysinternal’s TCPView may do what you are looking for, if a GUI tool is fine for what you are trying to do.
