Windows: Continuously monitor network connections

You sometimes want to check if a program that you've installed is doing anything funky. While you could install a full-blown packet analyser like WIreshark, sometimes, that is overkill. A quicker and handier option would be to just rely on good old netstat. Like so:

netstat -bn 10

as well as

netstat -bf 10

-b: displays the program name (executable)

-n: displays the IP address

-f: displays the resolved form of the IP address

10: indicates that the command should be repeated after 10 seconds

Hope this helps!
