Finding out what’s process is listening on port 80

Just saw an excellent tweet by @chadmyers:

FYI, to find which process has an open port: netstat -o -n -a | findstr 0.0:80
Where “80” is the port in question (i.e. 80, 443, etc). Get the PID (i.e. 5688) and open Task Manager, proc tab, add the PID column, sort

Awesome hack – i didn’t know this. More specifically, I didn’t know Windows had a poor-man’s grep in findstr

Take that, Skype!
