How to find which program is using port 80 in Windows?

In Uncategorized by adminLeave a Comment

Start->Accessories right click on “Command prompt”, in menu click “Run as Administrator” (on Windows XP you can just run it as usual), run netstat -anb then look through output for your program.

BTW, Skype by default tries to use ports 80 and 443 for incoming connections.

You can also run netstat -anb >%USERPROFILE%\ports.txt followed by start %USERPROFILE%\ports.txt to open port and process list in a text editor, where you can search for information you want.
