11.4 Networking

11.4.1 Show the Network Status: netstat

netstat shows network connections, routing tables (-r), interfaces (-i), masquerade connections (-M), multicast memberships (-g), and statistics (-s).

When displaying network connections or statistics, you can specify the socket type to display: TCP (-t), UDP (-u), or raw (-r). The -p option shows the PID and name of the program to which each socket belongs.

The following example lists all TCP connections and the programs using these connections.

mercury:~ # netstat -t -p
Active Internet connections (w/o servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address  Foreign Address       State       PID/Pro

tcp      0      0 mercury:33513    www.novell.com:www-http ESTABLISHED 6862/fi
tcp      0    352 mercury:ssh      mercury2.:trc-netpoll     ESTABLISHED 19422/s
tcp      0      0 localhost:ssh  localhost:17828         ESTABLISHED -

In the following, statistics for the TCP protocol are displayed:

[email protected]:~> netstat -s -t
Tcp:
    2427 active connections openings
    2374 passive connection openings
    0 failed connection attempts
    0 connection resets received
    1 connections established
    27476 segments received
    26786 segments send out
    54 segments retransmited
    0 bad segments received.
    6 resets sent
