The Active Connections window has been removed. Now to get information on connections, you have to install Killswitch. If you click on Watch Activity, you’ll be invited to install Killswitch from the GUI.
Probably should have referred to the folder as a window.
When uTorrent is active, all the ports that are transferring information are listed in its window.
My first problem is that all the active ports in uTorrent are not listed in Watch Activity - even though information is being concurrently transferred.
The second problem is that the “close” tab is not available for the ports and they are not identified as Time Wait.
Unfortunately, I’m not able to reproduce this. The only thing I can think of is that you’re looking at uTP connections in the peer list which will show as UDP in network connection monitors like killswitch. With regard to not being able to close a connection, you should only see that option for TCP established connections.
Sorry to say, but you guys don’t seem to have a clue.
I am watching active file transfer from ports that are definitely open and cannot close the ports with comodo.
Version 5 worker OK - version 6 is not up to the job.
What’s going on?
If you look closely, you’ll notice the ‘State’ of the connection for 40472 says SYN Sent, which basically means the connection is in the process of being negotiated, it’s not established and, as I said before, only established connections can be terminated. You’ll also notice the local port has changed from 55263 to 58536, which means the connection has been broken at least once and is trying to be re-established.
When a TCP connection is broken it goes into a TIME_WAIT state and is passed to System Idle Process (PID 0) to complete termination. Bearing this in mind, you should look under the, in killSwitch, unidentified process for these connections.
As far as port 48843, if you look at the utorrent flags you’ll see that connection is using uTP, which uses UDP and not TCP. Once again, because UDP is connectionless, there’s nothing to terminate.
If you want another vie of the connections your computer is dealing with, open a command prompt and type: netstat -ano
