    I remember there was a program that listed all the incoming and outgoing connections from the computer and displayed what programs were connecting the internet through what ports and displayed the IP addresses of any incoming connections.

    Does anyone know? It would be a great help if I could find this program again as it seems impossible to find again in google or here.

    In the command console, type netstat.

    Ahh, I never knew about that command. But the program I am looking for displays all the information in real time.

    netstat should cover most of what you're lookin for... type netstat help for a list of available comands... for example "netstat -b" will tell you what applcations are connected to the internet, what they're connected to, and what port and protocol they're connected on.
    and the interval command will update the stats every few seconds until you tell it to stop (ctrl+c)

    netstat/n should display the IP number instead of the address.

    netstat -a should show active connections.
