Ever wonder how to find what is on a port on XP?

netstat -aon | findstr 443
Last column is process number which ties back
to a process in the task manager (probably need to
add the coulumn via "Veiw->Select Columns"

if it turns out to be inetinfo.exe on port 443, it is probably enabled for "performance reasons"!;en-us;Q260096

IIS in its v5 form, takes the cake (socket pooling sucks) Just love the word sucks, don't you?

To work around this behavior, disable socket pooling in IIS as follows:

   1. At a command prompt, switch to the "C:\InetPub\AdminScripts" folder.
   2. Type the following command:
      CSCRIPT ADSUTIL.VBS SET W3SVC/DisableSocketPooling TRUE
