I need to find out which process is running on port 8888. I have used the 'netstat -AB' command in the command prompt however it does not show me the information. It seems to have a problem reading the process name.

enter image description here

NOTE: Originally this port was being blocked by java.exe (which I installed as part of setting up a team city server locally). However I have made sure to shut down all java.exe processes and I have uninstalled team city.


The process name is written on the following line after the connection details.

So port 8888 is open for listening by MobileService.exe

  • Which is either an iTunes executable: screenr.com/XRS or a 'Seagate Dashboard' program. – Jan Doggen Apr 1 '14 at 9:07
  • Lol yeah it is well done guys, just out of interest why does the one above it have no info though? – Pete2k Apr 1 '14 at 16:57
