Thread: Question I've Wanted To Ask For A While

  1. #1
    whenever i do a netstat, the only entry which seems to be there every single time is:

    "TCP computername:microsoft-ds computername:0 LISTENING"

    what does this actually do?

    I think that just indicates your computer (computername:microsoft-ds) is listening on tcp to another computer ( computername:0 ) = no active connection ??

    what switches are you using? netstat -a should give you something like this that shows all active services and ports

    Code:
    Active Connections

    yeah, netstat -a was what i used
    so that &#39;connection&#39; isn&#39;t really an active connection at all...?

    It&#39;s a listening port. If you have printer and file sharring enabled in XP, that&#39;s what it is. It listens for incoming requests. On a desktop, it can be a vulnerability for dos attack and other things.

    "Microsoft-DS"....it&#39;s the service/protocol name for tcp&#092;udp port 445 which as you may know is for File&#092;Print Sharing.
