Q

Where can I find a list of PID associations?

I recently ran netstat against my system with "a," "n" and "o" flags. The last flag provided me with the owner or PID associated with the local address and port. I have been trying to find a list of standard PID associations to ensure only the necessary services are running and thus limiting the types of open ports on my machine. Where can I find such a list?
PID stands for Process ID. I'm not sure these are static IDs across reboots or re-launches of each process. However, you can check out this Web site, which may help you figure out what processes you need and don't need.
