The power of “netstat” in 10 easy steps

Filed under
HowTos

This is a quick guide to some not so obvious command-line options available in the Linux netstat command. I hope you enjoy it.

1. Plain old netstat

Without any command-line arguments, “netstat” shows a list of network connections in your system, including TCP, UDP and UNIX socket connections.

2. Seeing all connections with “netstat -a”

Full Story.
