Windows Developer Help: Knowing a Process with port and killing it

Sometimes we need to know the application or process that is using a particular port and kill or stop that process in a Microsoft Windows based PC.

Following command (Netstat ), shows list of process and port it is using
Netstat -a -n -o

You can pipe the response with more command like follows,

Netstat -a -n -o | more



Once we know the Process ID(PID) of the process using a particular port, we can use the following command to know more about the process or kill it.

tasklist /svc  /FI "PID eq 1196"    ( Get details about the process)


taskkill /PID 827                          (Killl the process, similar to ps -ef in linux)
