TCPView is a Windows application that lets you view detailed listings relating to all UDP and TCP endpoints right on your system. The listings include remote and local addresses and TCP connections’ state.

Complete Listings

TCPView is a program ideal for people who would like to know the backend of things on their computer. For instance, it lets you know what actually happens when an address is typed into a web browser, or when online games and antivirus applications are at play. In case you weren’t aware, a lot of Internet points such as web servers and DNS, routers, gateways, switches, etc. get to work whenever you initiate an action online. The speed with which the output arrives depends on the nodes the signal is made to travel through. The lesser the nodes involved, the speedier the entire process. TCP is a free networking information tool that shows complete information about your PC’s TCP/UDP endpoints.

Interface and Interaction

When you launch the program, a classic window opens up, comprising the main area where the processes get listed. The process list comes with a header that has titles for every column: protocol, process, remote address, local address and state. The interface is simple, easy to use and appropriately designed for what’s needed. TCPView displays the application’s name and its opened connections. There is a “resolve addresses” selection that lets you know a lot more about an Internet server beyond its IP. This program should easily replace the Netstat program that comes with Windows.

TCPView is a Windows program that will show you detailed listings of all TCP and UDP endpoints on your system, including the local and remote addresses and state of TCP connections.

On Windows NT, 2000 and XP TCPView also reports the name of the process that owns the endpoint. TCPView provides a more informative and conveniently presented subset of the Netstat program that ships with Windows.
