Problem

What process has this port open?

Solution

Find the PID of the offending process as so:

> netstat -a -n -o

Then bring up task mangler, select the PID field to be displayed, sort by PID, and presto.

In my case it was a svchost.exe that was running the dhcp server. Restarting the dhcp server service freed up the port I wanted.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
