Open Ports

netstat -a will show all open ports.
netstat -ab includes the program using it
netstat /? show other options

You could also download Taskinfo 6 which can show all the ports each process has open along with lots of other networky type info.

Note: the reason i suggested an external test is that ports may be shown as open on the PC but are blocked by your firewall and router so are not actually open to the outside world and thus may give you incorrect info to base any decisions on.

netstat -na tells you what open ports yu have on your machines, if you want to know what services are listening then look for the lines ending with LISTENING

If you have grep on your machine then

netstat -na | grep LISTENING
