Let's look at a couple of examples. Say that you've been contacted by a system administrator reporting some unusual network traffic. She received an alert from the intrusion detection system (IDS), and in checking the firewall logs, found some suspicious log entries that seemed to correlate with the IDS alerts.

That is, every network connection and open port is associated with a process. Several tools are available to the investigator to retrieve this process-to-port mapping. exe program offers the -0 switch to display the process ID for the process responsible for the network connection. exe to determine the name (and additional information) of the process using the connection. exe in Windows 2003 SP1 and can provide more information about the process using a particular port.
