    Netstat -an showing lots of listening + established, why?


    my friend was showing me how to do something on my computer and went on CMD, netstat -an .. it showed a lot of conections some where at TIME WAIT, most split between LISTENING and ESTABLISHED there are 74 i counted, is this something or nothing, tried to look it up online but didnt seem to get much telling me what should be there and shouldnt. i know its probably nothing but thought it would be worth an ask and hoped this may be the place for a quick simple awnser.

    Sounds about right to me. Just ran netstat on my production PC as a go-by, and got 76 items right off the bat. Sounds entirely normal to me. OTOH, if you want to upload your netstat output, I could see if there are any analysis tools or "things to watch out for" documented somewhere online.
    HTH,
