Get List of Port Assignments

by Jun 21, 2017

The IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) maintains a CSV file with all known port assignments. PowerShell can download this list for you:

$out = "$env:temp\portlist.csv"
$url = ''
$web = Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $url -UseBasicParsing -OutFile $out
Import-Csv -Path $out -Encoding UTF8

The result is a list with all the port assignments in object oriented format. You could then use this information for example to filter out specific ports:

Import-Csv -Path $out -Encoding UTF8 |
  Where-Object 'transport protocol' -eq 'tcp' |
  Where-Object 'Port Number' -lt 1000
