C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe

by frontblatt / December 27, 2006 6:51 PM PST

Hi, wonder if anyone can help. Start>Run>cmd>netstat -a/ produced 12 items that under Proto-CTP State:listening when connected to the net. Can anyone tell me if 1025,1026,1027,1030,1039,1347 and 1349 are ports? What do the names like qotd, chargen, epmap, microsoft-ds, and netbios-ssn mean under local and foreign address?
My system has slowed down even though I am protected like fort knox. Can anyone enlighten me?
Any help would be appreciated.
Rolf

What have you scanned with for Virus, trojans, spyware, adware, etc. so far and are you clean now?? As far as your other questions, I would have to Google for the majority of them which I don't have the time for as many question that you have. It would probably be easier if you did that youself but if you answer my other questions, I will check back in a 2 or 3 hours. I have to do some offline things now.

An example.

One can type What is CHARGEN at google.com and learn more about it and others at wikipedia.com. These are basic services that one could install in Windows.

Cheaper than a fine book on basic networking or networking history.

'Can anyone tell me if 1025,1026,1027,1030,1039,1347 and 1349 are ports?'

In a word, yes.

For the rest, follow the instruction of Mr. Proffitt to determine what those processes are.

Do the scans suggested by Roddy to see if you are clean.

If you post back with results please ensure you follow forum guidelines with respect to posting.

Find them in red above your posting area as follows ''Note: If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem.'

How can we close these ports?

I operate on XP Pro and IE6 and systems clear of viruses and root kits. Yet there are listeners when on the net only. How can we close those listening ports?
