Processes and Port Numbers

Need to find out what process is using a certain port? Use CurrPorts! Download it here. Download the whole zip file and extract it. There would be a number of programs inside. Open up CurrPorts and it would list all the processes using the respective port numbers.

To kill the process:
Now that you know what is the process, open Task Manager(CTRL + ALT + DEL) and search for the process. Select it and press End Process.


I had to use this because there was a port being used and I could not do On-Device Debugging to my Sony Ericsson JP-8 phone. So this might help some of you people out there!
