Have you checked out Zone Alarm Pro?  It tells you what is going on and
gives you the best protection for a Windows box that I have tested.

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.
