Try looking for some hackers port scanning tools if netstat isn't giving
you as much info as you need. nmap is a really flexible command line
tool for linux and windows you can get it here http://www.insecure.com/
run it in a dos box or a linux shell with the command 'nmap -sT -v -v
localhost' (remove the quotes) to see all ports (with service names)
that are listening. If you don't like command lines then SuperScan fron
http://www.foundstone.com is a good tool for windows. Remember the less
open ports the better.

Hello list,
           I am trying to configure Kerio Personal Firewall and this firewall 
allows me to specify explicitly which service is allowed inbound/outbound 
connection thru either TCP/UDP including the exact port numbers and IP range to 
respond to. 

My question is: Is there a software/utility that will tell me exactly which 
service/application is currently listening on exactly which TCP/UDP port number?

"netstat -a" only lists the active listening ports but doesnt tell me which 
service/application is listening on that port for incoming packets.

I would like to "lock down" the server as much as possible by specifying 
exactly which port and service a connection is allowed. Thanks in advance.
