On the Windows platform, open a command prompt and type:  netstat -a -o >c:\ports.txt

The above will generate a list of all ports, including the listening ports (State will show Listening); open the file in Notepad. The Windows PID will also be listed, which is the process ID that is listening on the port. In the Task Manager, edit the columns displayed to include the PID, so that you can determine the name of the process that opened the port and is listening on that port. On my system, the Enterprise Manager Database Control process name is listed as Java, and most seem to have a port in the range of 5500 and above, although ports in and around 1158 may also be used.
