When I run netstat -b on Windows 10 I get lots of results of similar nature

TCP LocalHostName:64249 ESTABLISHED [w3wp.exe] TCP LocalHostName:64248 ESTABLISHED [w3wp.exe]

I would like to know what causes connections on ports 64248 and 64249. They both seem to be open and connected on w3wp.exe process. This doesn't seem right and I must be missing something.


They are app pool connections, you can run "appcmd list wp" to see the PID and app pools running.
