Windows Port Reporter

Ever gotten the message from JBoss about port 1098 being in use? Ever wondered what was using it (on Windows at least)?

Microsoft has a PortReporter utility available that will report port usage. It’s downloadable from (at least at time of posting)

It installs a service that you can start and stop. It will then log port usage when it’s started (in c:windowssystem32logfilesportreporter) and keep track of port usage as time passes.

By the way, the answer was Outlook in my case, so I changed the jboss port.

It's only fair to share...
