We often find that our Router or various Computer-Applications are connecting to the Internet without our knowledge. It might also be a result of spyware or malware infection.Even keyloggers or packet sniffers transmit our private data over the Internet to remote Computer.So this unknown connection to Internet is quite risky to some extent. For checking the applications which are currently running on the Computer we can have a check from the Task-Bar. But how do we know which applications are connecting to the Internet ?
When we are surfing the Internet or Downloading some data, we are aware that a connection to remote Computers is being made. But to be aware of the unknown data transfer which takes place without our knowledge, we now have a Software program to know it.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. It 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. It is compatible with all versions of Windows operating system.
When you start TCPView, it will enumerate all active TCP and UDP endpoints, resolving all IP addresses to their domain name versions.By default, TCPView updates every second, but you can use the Options >> Refresh Rate menu item to change the rate. Endpoints that change state from one update to the next are highlighted in yellow; those that are deleted are shown in red, and new endpoints are shown in green.
If you find that there are some unwanted established TCP/IP connections (those labeled with a state of ESTABLISHED), u can always close them by selecting File >> Close Connections.
