|Hello. I am having trouble understanding output from netstat -a|
I ran this command from an elevated command prompt on Windows 7 professional and I am having trouble understanding which ports are listening for connections from a remote machine rather than my local computer. It shows tcp ports 135, 445, 5357, 49152 through 49157 listening on local address 0.0.0.0:portnum and listening for foreign address calum-laptoppc:0
There are several ports listening on the loopback address (127.0.0.1 listening for foreign address calum-laptoppc:localportnum. The ports listening here are 10110, 49163 through and then it shows two tcp connections from 192.168.1.66 (my ip) to an internet address using port 80 - http.
It then shows the same as the 135 and 49157 port range I mentioned at the start listening for calum-laptoppc again (tcp connection)
It then shows various udp ports listening for *:*
What does this say in terms of my pc's network security? I ran some tools to disable dcom and close port 139 and upnp from the Gibson research website www.grc.com.
