    Question How to detect connections of an executing app?

    Hi guys,

    I need to test some tasks for myself and one of them is this:

    - the app's .exe name is pre-coded
    - my code checks if it's running... if NOT try again
    - if yes, retrieve a list of all connections (source and target) including ports

    It would be a console app, I just want it to show each connection from that process.
    minding: source and target, including ports

    Thanks a lot!

    No, no, no, no. He wants to make a standard c program, that way it can be portable.

    If the OS gives me full freedom to use the "in" and "out" instructions, using x86, I could do it in an OS portable way...

    EDIT: Ops, I thought he meant hardware ports!
    Devoted my life to programming...

    sorry not to explain very well...
    My app has another app as a target. When the terget is executing, my app would check any internet connection from the target.
    I don't know HOW to make my app "see" those connections with details, like IP addresses and ports.
    Windows OS of course (that's why I posted here).

    when I say "detailed" info, i mean something like "netstat -n"
