What are these connections svchost.exe makes?

Recommended Posts

svchost.exe:888 TCP *.:1048 64.4.21.61:https ESTABLISHED

svchost.exe:888 TCP *.:1047 64.4.21.61:http ESTABLISHED

svchost.exe:888 TCP *.:1046 64.212.100.110:http ESTABLISHED

 

They occur when I just enable my network card (I never have the connection enabled if I don't need it).

 

I got these using TCPView from sysinternals.

 

I see no signs of any breach of my security, and I use NOD32 with Zone Alarm Pro.

port 61 is IMAP, EMAIL, https is your SSL, 110 is POP3, svchost.exe, is your system, 888 is the process ID. 1048, 47, 46 are you local outbound ports, which are random.

 

Here is a listing of ports

No security breach.

 

If you turn off DNS client I think you'll find that there won't be any svchost connections.Or so I found when I used ZAP which was a fair while ago.

 

Some say that by turning off dns client it slows your browsing but I leave it disabled and have no slowdowns with FF.

DNS Client is a total memory wasting useless service :rolleyes:

https means its on port 443.

http means its on port 80.

 

TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is the protocol.

ESTABLISHED is the state of the TCP connection.

For a detailed view of open ports and established connections you may also use:

 

CurrPorts or What`s Running. Both freeware.

I currently use TCPview from Sysinternals.

 

 

Sysinternals tools are very useful but now they are distributed by Microsoft :

MS Technet : Sysinternals Homepage

I hope they will remain freeware.

Currently they're all still free and MS does have a good number of free stuff if you look hard enough on their download website, and of course validate your Windows installation with them in order to download anything.
