  • Open Ports

    Hi,

    On Windows 2000 Server (terminal server), how do I do the following:

    1. Check a specific port (in this case port 383) is open and listening? So far I have tried netstat -na which generated a list of ports and their status (383 was not listed).
    2. Open or close said port and ensure it is listening?

    1. You've answered your own question. If netstat doesn't list the port, then it's not open.

    2. Typically a program, process, or service would open a port. What is your purpose for this port?

      1. Port scan the machine using a port scanner or use PrtQry from MS.

      2. Close the app or stop the service that is running on said port. A quick check of Google suggests that this may be HP software.

        The company uses HP OpenView which (apparently) needs that port open.

        It appears that HPOV isn't opening the port or something else is getting in the way ... any idea how I can specifically open it??

          The software should do that for you.
