How do I find out that who are connected to my Windows based web server?

Posted on in Categories News last updated May 3, 2006

MS-Windows server offers two ways to find out current number of connection to web service.

You can use netstat command, which will list connection for port 80. Click on start > Run > And type command cmd > At command prompt type command:

c:> netstat

To get help on netstat command type command:

c:> netstat /?

However Microsoft also offers current connections performance object tool. It will display current number of connection to web service/server.

To activate this tool:

  1. Click on Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Performance. It will open Performance Monitor.
  2. Now right click on the graph and select Add Counters
  3. Next change the Performance Object to Web Service
  4. Highlight “Current Connections” > Click on Add
  5. Click Close

  1. xnd,

    Heh…there are very few (may be less than 5-8) posts related to Windows server admin. Earlier we had some post. But these days we don’t have any windows related stuff.

    Appreciate your post.
