Viewing the ports being used by any application is possible in Windows XP using the netstat command-line tool. Netstat (NETwork STATistics) displays information like network connections, routing table and other network interface statistics. The problem with netstat is that it only displays the PID (Process ID) of the application using that port. Luckily an innovative form of netstat equipped with GUI is available. The application is called WinNetStat. The graphical interface of this software allows you to sort according to the application names or according to port number. See actual screenshot below.

Hello there,

You can get some very useful software to get the specific port number, but also you can get those numbers by using few commands. Like netstat –a, tcpdump –I, tcptrace. But in my opinion you can wireshark, so many people think this as an illegal software, but this is actually a security tool. It also shows the packets and there is a tool in this software which can help you to see the port number. But you have to find out your desired application about which you are trying to know.

Thank you,
