CurrPorts: Monitoring TCP/IP network connections on Windows will list all open ports - but reading the second line of your post I'm not sure that's actually what you wanted to do?
I want to look at a list of ports that are active on one of my servers. Is there a utility, akin to ipscan for IP addresses, that I can use?
What I am trying to do is find all the ports being used for printers to ensure that they are all on separate ones.
Thanks I'll have a search.
There is only one tool to use for Network/Port scanning - NMAP (as featured in the Matrix Reloaded)
There is a nice GUI shipped with Windows version called Zenmap

Thanks I'll take a look.
Ubuntu has a nice port scan in it's networking tools. You can run it live from a CD or in a virtual box, or an actual box. I've used this many times to see whats open and what it used for, tho i think it lookes up the use from a table somewhere rather than actual use.
Thanks Matt but I know nothing of Ubuntu - should I be ashamed? Windows only experience, but thanks anyway.
1. Get ISO and burn to CD,
2. Stick CD in drive and launch into the 'live' or 'try ubuntu without any change to your computer'
3. Once loaded, go to system (top left), administration, network tools, then click on the port scan tab, and enter IP - then click scan.
4. Once complete shut down the ubuntu OS from the top right corner and wait on screen instructions to remove disk.
Should you be ashaimed - No, i had no experiance of ubuntu untill i needed to use something other than windows to get into a windows machine to get files off, all of us here have never used it at one point, some people still havent and never will, there was a point where you had never used windows... if nothing else comes back simpler give it a go, only a CD and some time too lose.
You'll want a machine with a p3 or better and at least 512 RAM.
OK willing to have a go - could you point me to where I get the ISO from please? Or is it as simple as typing in Ubuntu Home Page | Ubuntu Oh I see that it is thanks. Which version - desktop or server - do you recommend?
