Nagwin is a port of the Nagios software application normally found on Unix/Linux for Windows. Nagios is a popular system and networking monitor application. All of the individual components (such as Cygwin) are included within the download package.
Several years ago, Microsoft released a small utility to query for open network ports. The portqry application can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17148. A KB article describing the application can be found at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;310099.
Below are some examples of using the utility. The –n parameter is for the IP address or DNS host name. The –e parameter is for the destination port to query for on the remote host.
TCP is the default protocol. The –p parameter can specify TCP, UDP, or BOTH.
The –o parameter allows multiple port values to be queried.
The –r parameter allows a range of port values to be queried.

Starting in the Windows Vista/Server 2008 time frame, an option was made available to modify or create a XML query to generate Custom Views within the Event Viewer. To create a Custom View, access the Event Viewer application. Right-click on the Custom Views subfolder and select the Create Custom View menu option.
Click on the XML tab and then on the Edit query manually checkbox. Click on the Yes button within the warning dialog box.
Enter text for the XML query. Below is some sample text to search the Security logs for the user account test:
<Query Id="0" >
*[EventData[Data[@Name='SubjectUserName'] and (Data='test')]]
When finished, give the Custom View entry a name and description.
Queries can include AND/OR operators.<QueryList>
*[EventData[Data[@Name='SubjectUserName'] and (Data='test' or Data=’testtwo’)]]
To find additional fields to query on, access the details of an event entry and click on the XML view.
The query below looks for events that any data or field equals test<QueryList>
*[EventData[Data and (Data='test' )]]
