I recently installed Cygwin on my windows server, not I wanted to check what process is using what port, I've tried to use the following command: fuser -TERM -n tcp 25565

Then it gave me an error, Can't open protocolfile '/proc/net/tcp': No such file or directory

Am I missing something, or is there another way of finding out what proccess is using a specific port?

Cygwin doesn't attempt to emulate every aspect of Linux. If you want to check what process is using what port, you can run netstat -b as admin. Note that this is Windows's own netstat (most likely in C:\Windows\System32); Cygwin doesn't have its own netstat, as far as I know.
