In addition to the free online port lookup facility … “Dave’s Port Reference is available for download as a Windows HTML Help (.chm) file. The help file is available in two formats, double page, like the web site, and single page, with the lookup at the top of the port list. I prefer the two page format so that I can do a quick port lookup without having to wait for the huge port list to load. My friend Sven wanted a single page version, so I built him one and include it here. Take your pick or get them both and decide later.
“Dave’s Port Reference is also available as a XML document (ZIP wrapped).”

“CurrPorts displays the list of all currently opened TCP/IP and UDP ports on your local computer. For each port in the list, information about the process that opened the port is also displayed, including the process name, full path of the process, version information of the process (product name, file description, and so on), the time that the process was created, and the user that created it.
“In addition, CurrPorts allows you to close unwanted TCP connections, kill the process that opened the ports, and save the TCP/UDP ports information to HTML file, XML file, or to tab-delimited text file. CurrPorts also automatically mark with pink color suspicious TCP/UDP ports owned by unidentified applications (Applications without version information and icons).
“If you want to get more information about the remote IP address displayed in CurrPorts utility, you can utilize the Integration with IPNetInfo utility in order to easily view the IP address information from WHOIS servers:
♦ Download and run the latest version of IPNetInfo utility.
( http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/ipnetinfo.html )
♦ Select the desired connections, and then choose IPNetInfo from the File menu.
♦ IPNetInfo will retrieve the information about remote IP addresses of the selected connections.”

“AnalogX PortMapper allows you to map any port on your computer to any IP address and port on another machine; not only that, you can limit access based on the incoming IP address! So, say for instance that you are using a proxy, and would like to be able to telnet from other machines; simple, just run PortMapper, and tell it to forward any request to port 23 (telnet) to the machine you want to access. Now, any time you telnet to your proxy server machine, it automatically forwards the data to the other machine! Or, do you run a webserver, and only want people from IP address you specify to connect? No problem, PortMapper can do that as well! Overall, a great standalone program, or an excellent addition to a proxy or server!”

“PortPeeker is a freeware utility for capturing network traffic for TCP, UDP or ICMP protocols (see Note below about ICMP traffic). With Port Peeker you can see what traffic is being sent to a given port, easily and quickly. PortPeeker is a single standalone exe and can be placed anywhere on the system. We recommend creating a desktop shortcut to PortPeeker so its quick and easy to find and use.
“Once you have started PortPeeker you have to configure it as to what protocol and port (or just ICMP protocol as it doesn’t use ‘ports’) to listen on. You can also configure PortPeeker as to what type of traffic events to record. For example if we want to listen for TCP port 80 traffic (http), we would configure PortPeeker to listen on TCP 80.”

“Find all active devices on your network. Discover the ip address and available services for each network device. Run a speed test to check your internet connection speed.
“PortScan shows all open ports and additional information like host name, MAC address, HTTP, SMB, FTP, iSCSI, SMTP and SNMP services. Up to 100 threads are used for scaning large ip address ranges.
“You can search for UPnP enabled devices, Bonjour services, Netgear router, Samsung printer and Freecom network devices. So you can find them even if you don’t know the ip address. Ping any computer with 3 standard sized ping packets, with 3 different sizes, each 10 times or ping the computer continuously. Test your internet connection speed by downloading and uploading data to various servers. Also a latency test and a open port test is included.”

“Simple Port Forwarding works with WebPages and not directly with your router. Making it a safe program to use. Its no different than using Firefox, IE or any other browser to setup port forwarding yourself. The program works by automating the process for you. So whether you don’t understand how to forward ports, or you’re simply looking for an easier way to forward ports then this program is for you.
“The program has many extra tools, such as a tool to set your IP to static or back to DHCP. When port forwarding the router forwards to an IP address. When DHCP is enabled your IP address can change and thus breaking the port forwarding. By setting your IP to static it never changes. I added this tool to make setting a static IP as easy as possible for people instead of manually doing it on there systems (Which if a person has never done it before can be a little intimidating). The Program also makes adding the ports to the windows firewall as easy as a few clicks! Once you have your ports forwarded you can then test to see if they can be accessed right from with in the program using the built in port tester.”
