Don't have a general solution for you but the command "netstat" will show running services and connected ports. You can also have a look at the services file located under C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc.

Hi, it looks like there is a method to manipulate ports in .NET.
There should be a way to enumerate used and free ports with this method. Have a look at the newsgroups.

Hope this helps.
