Just wondering if anyone know what this string of text means when I do the command netstat -a in cmd.

 

Proto  Local Address          Foreign Address        State
TCP    0.0.0.0:###           DESKTOP-CJIELG3:0      LISTENING
 
I'm mainly interested in knowing what the "DESKTOP-CJIELG3:0" part means.
 
Thank you to anyone that knows.
 
 
Also, when I do netstat -nao and check the ip addresses, quite a few of them are linked to Amazon.com, is there anything that comes preinstalled with windows 10 that needs to have a connection to Amazon? (I haven't accessed the amazon website since installing w10)

Do you have Windows 10 Pro 

 

Foreign Address means the computer name that its connecting to

 

So 

 

A computer on TCP x.x.x.x:port called name is listening 

 

Windows 10 has a feature that has a built in P2P network for windows Updates  Turn off or Local Network only if you decide on that.

 

Go to updates and security

Advance options

Choose how updates are delivered

Check mark "Local Network"

Once you click that "Turn off"

Amazon offers AWS (Amazon Web Services), which a lot of programs and companies uses. So these connections are probably made by programs, services, etc. that you have running on your system which connects to servers hosted on AWS.

Hey, thanks for replying.

 

No I'm just on the normal home version.

 

After looking further into it, that foreign address is actually the name of the computer, any idea why it would be "LISTENING" to itself?
