    TCPView and Chrome: Remote Address Column is blank...


    When using TCPView I have noticed that the Remote Address column only contains the * symbol for the Google Chrome application.

    Some [System Process] processes spawn in TCPView which show which IPs chrome is connecting to but the [System Process] process doesn't always appear when Chrome makes a data request to a website.

    I know these are active connections because TCPView shows data transference.

    Can anyone explain how to fix this problem so the IPs/URLs chrome is connecting to show up in the relevant 'Remote Address' column?

    No Problem here. I Am running TCP View as admin though.

    I'm running it as admin as well. Remote address column simply shows * .

    Any further leads anyone can think of would be appreciated.

    Process PID Local Address Local Port Remote Address Sent Packets Sent Bytes
    Chrome.exe #### <Computer Name> #### * 15 120

    Can't provide a screenshot but that's exactly what one of many rows shows.

    I can't provide a screenshot. Suffice to say that the row(s) in question are showing sent and received data but the Remote Address column simply shows *.

    There are rows beginning with [System Process] that appear to show the correct connection endpoints.

    How to fix this?

    EDIT: I think the [System Process] row is TCPView's version of displaying the SVCHost process, but I'm not sure and need someone who can confirm that with evidence.

    Your snippet doesn't indicate a Protocol or State column. Did you leave them out or does your version of TCPView not show them? Are you using 3.05?

    The remote address/port being * can indicate a UDP socket.

    Try TCP UDP Watch - it logs the traffic. In the case of Cports.exe, * stands for DNS request.
    By the way TCPView has not been updated for 7 years, it is not exactly the best tool to use.

    I guess they're UDP... I didn't notice that!

    The address to which the UDP packets are being sent occasionally shows up in a different row labeled as [System Process]. Why is that?

    (P.S. What's with the massive whitespace after shorter posts...?)

    Are you still using TCPView? I haven't seen any UDP sockets ever show a remote address.
