Name that Port, Powershell Style!

In a previous post, I presented a VBScript that displays the service assigned to common port numbers. You can also enter a search string to find any ports whose service (protocol) contain the search string.

Richard Siddaway suggested that the script should be written in Powershell instead, so here it is: Get-Port.ps1


Get-Port.ps1 portnumber
This command gets the specified port number and displays the associated service

Get-Port.ps1 searchstring
This command displays all ports and services that match the search string. Searchstring is case insensitive.
