Description

TcpLogView is a simple utility that monitors the opened TCP connections on your system, and adds a new log line every time that a TCP connection is opened or closed. For every log line, the following information is displayed: Even Time, Event Type (Open, Close, Listen), Local Address, Remote Address, Remote Host Name, Local Port, Remote Port, Process ID, Process Name, and the country information of the Remote IP (Requires to download IP to country file separately.)

System Requirements & Limitations

  • This utility works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows 2000 and up to Windows 8. On 64-bit systems, you should use the x64 build of TcpLogView.
  • This utility creates the TCP log by taking a snapshot of currently open TCP connections, and comparing it to the previous snapshot. This means that if a TCP connection is opened for a very short time, then TcpLogView will not be able to capture it.
  • On Windows Vista/7/8 with UAC turned on, you should run TcpLogView as administrator if you want to get full process information.

Start Using TcpLogView

TcpLogView doesn't require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - TcpLogView.exe
After running TcpLogView, it starts logging the TCP connections, and adds a new line every time that TCP connection is opened or closed. You can clear the current log by using the Clear Log option (Ctrl+X)

Download IP to country file

In order to get country information of the remote IP address ('Remote IP Country' column), you should download one of the following files, and put the file in the same folder of TcpLogView.exe:
  • http://software77.net/geo-ip/
    You should save the file as IpToCountry.csv in the same folder of TcpLogView.exe
  • GeoLite City database
    Simply download the GeoLite City in Binary / gzip (GeoLiteCity.dat.gz) and put it in the same folder of TcpLogView.exe

Integration with IPNetInfo utility

If you want to get more information about the remote IP address displayed in TcpLogView utility, you can use the Integration with IPNetInfo utility in order to easily view the IP address information loaded directly from WHOIS servers:
  1. Download and run the latest version of IPNetInfo utility.
  2. Select the desired connections, and then choose "IPNetInfo - Remote Address" from the File menu (or simply click Ctrl+I).
  3. IPNetInfo will retrieve the information about remote IP addresses of the selected items.

Translating TcpLogView to other languages

In order to translate TcpLogView to other language, follow the instructions below:
  1. Run TcpLogView with /savelangfile parameter:
    TcpLogView.exe /savelangfile
    A file named TcpLogView_lng.ini will be created in the folder of TcpLogView utility.
  2. Open the created language file in Notepad or in any other text editor.
  3. Translate all string entries to the desired language. Optionally, you can also add your name and/or a link to your Web site. (TranslatorName and TranslatorURL values) If you add this information, it'll be used in the 'About' window.
  4. After you finish the translation, Run TcpLogView, and all translated strings will be loaded from the language file.
    If you want to run TcpLogView without the translation, simply rename the language file, or move it to another folder.
