Virtual Ports

My neighbour is getting an error messages, from his Anti-Virus program, when he sends Outlook mail. It tells him that it can not check outgoing mail, as another program is using his Port 25. Is there any way of checking what programs are using which Ports, or a way of altering the Ports used by programs.

A router can redirect traffic among ports, pretty sure I read something about software routing with windows. I believe it is built in, could be only Win2k/Server or something though.

I'd be surprised if you couldn't change the outgoing port somewhere inside Outlook, take a look through the configuration.

For now here is a good port checker.

I was slow writing it beat me to it. :(

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
