As the name implies, Open Ports Scanner is a program used to monitor open TCP and UDP ports and applications. This way, you can detect spyware, malware and Trojans that infiltrate your computer.
Upon deployment Open Ports Scanner automatically displays a list of all open TCP and UDP ports, and you can sort them by protocol type, process ID or name, local address or port, remote address or port, or connection state.
This list can be refreshed at any time. Plus, you can terminate any open applications, as well as export the list to a plain text document (TXT format) for further analysis.
Starting or stopping the monitoring procedure is done with the simple click of a button, in the Action menu. From the Settings area you can hide UDP or TCP connections, make the app automatically refresh the connection list and ports, as well as adjust the refresh rate.
The simple-to-use program is very low-demanding in regard to the CPU and system memory, hence it doesn't affect the computer's performance. It has a good response time, immediately refreshes the ports list and includes user documentation.
No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and the utility did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. In conclusion, Open Ports Scanner is a straightforward program that comes packed with the necessary and suffice elements for monitoring open TCP and UDP ports.
