I was just listening to Security Now!'s newest episode on the Netstat feature.
I realized i really never used it for anything, in pure curiosity lead me to enter the command into my command prompt. Then i wanted to check out all the forign addresses, so i could see what was connecting to my computer.
I opened up IE (firefox gave me problems with this :'( ) and typed in some addresses. But i got an error when typing in one forign address that started with localhost. The error said that, "Some content or files on this webpage require a program that you don't have installed." So i clicked the link on that error page that said " Search online for a program you can use to view this web content."
Then it gives me this message,

Is their a program to actually view this connection, or is this just a vague/general error message that I received that does not specifically pertain to me?
