    Hello all,

    I have a simple question and I hope to get an answer
    from the experts on this list.

    I have a PC running Windows 2000 Prof, and when I do
    a netstat -an, I get the following:

    Active Connections:
    Proto Local Addr Foreign Addr State





    UDP *:*
    UDP *:*
    UDP *:*
    UDP *:*
    UDP *:*

    I get this output even when I am running no network
    application on the machine.

    Of course, this all seems quite suspicious.

    Can somebody please help me figure out what is going
    on? At least find the respective applications
    on various ports.??

    Thanks and best regards,

    Do you Yahoo!?
