When this happens, open a command prompt (CMD) and type in:
netstat -anb

You should get a list of Protocol | Local IP | Remote IP | Status and in the next line, the program, that is listening or that is just connected to the address inclusive port, that is used.

Thanks Paulsep. I also found a free pgm, currports that provides all that information, allows you to filter only processes that have active connections, and names the program and process id using the ports. This is now in my toolkit.

I appreciate the help from this site. It's a keeper.

The problem is now solved.
