How to Check Open Ports on a Local Computer
Run on the command prompt:
- LISTENING – the port is waiting for incoming connections;
- ESTABLISHED – the connection is established;
- CLOSE_WAIT – waiting for closing due to disconnection of the remote side;
- TIME_WAIT – the port is closed, but is still waiting for incoming packets to be processed;
- SYN_SENT – connection establishment.
If you need to find out what programs are using ports on your computer, run the command prompt as administrator and run the command:
netstat -n -b
How to Check Open Ports on a Remote Computer
If on older operating systems before Windows 8, you could use the telnet command to check the open port of a remote computer, but on Windows 11, Windows 10, I recommend using the PowerShell command: Test-NetConnection to check the open TCP port.
You may need to run PowerShell as administrator.
The Test-NetConnection cmdlet displays diagnostic information for a connection. It supports ping test, TCP test, route tracing, and route selection diagnostics. Depending on the input parameters, the output can include the DNS lookup results, a list of IP interfaces, IPsec rules, route/source address selection results, and/or confirmation of connection establishment.
Attention: Test-NetConnection can only check TCP ports!
Checking the port status of a remote computer using PowerShell:
Test-NetConnection -ComputerName 192.168.2.1 -Port 443
The value of the The value of the TcpTestSucceeded field indicates the state of the device port:
- True – the port is open;
- False – the port is closed.
You can use the command in an abbreviated form and with additional parameters, for example:
TNC 188.8.131.52 -Port 24101 -InformationLevel Detailed
You can learn about other features of the Test-NetConnection command at the Microsoft Documentation Portal.
