How to hide tcp port listener powershell script?

GOALS: run a powershell script without showing the window (it’s ok if it pops up for few seconds).

PROBLEM: the script tcplisten.ps1 works just if the window is displayed to the user. All the attempts below don’t work. Because when I run netstat -ano -p tcp, port 9999 is not listening.


$  Listener = [System.Net.Sockets.TcpListener]9999; $  Listener.Start() 



powershell.exe -windowstyle hidden .\tcplisten.ps1 

hidden -command

powershell -windowstyle hidden -command $  Listener = [System.Net.Sockets.TcpListener]9999; $  Listener.Start() 

-NoProfile -NonInteractive -ExecutionPolicy Bypass

powershell -NoP -NonI -W Hidden -Exec Bypass -Command 


Start-Process powershell.exe -ArgumentList "-WindowsStyle hidden -file .\tcplisten.ps1" 

vbs script

Create a .vbs with this script and run it

command = "powershell.exe -nologo -command C:\Users\Utente\Desktop\tcplisten.ps1" set shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") shell.Run command,0 

QUESTION: is there a solution? Am I doing some mistake?
