This is done with a program called a port scanner. My port scanner of choice is Blue's Port Scanner, available at http://bluebitter.de . When you get it running, scan 127.0.0.1. This will show you your computer's open or "listening" ports.

I like Shield's UP...if you put your mouse over the little green boxes it will tell you what the port is for.

WOW, great little tool !! I tried it scanning TCP and got zero results. I tried it scannig UDP and got 3 results.
1. port 1025-blackjack
2. port 1046 with no description of an association
3. port 1278-dellwebadmin-1

I have a ZyXel, ZyWall X2, do I set up a rule to block these as "incoming" (WAN to LAN), or "outgoing" (LAN to WAN), or both?

Thanks to all for a great place to get this stuff answered.
