listing hosts connected to game server
 
i'm running a game server (call of duty 4) and i would like to check (using system commands) if there are people connected to it. i've tried lsof and netstat with various parameters to see clients connected to game server, but i can't see anything, even though i'm connected. i don't know much about networking, but if someone is connected to the server, shouldn't it be listed somewhere? is it possible that game server hides clients connected from the system?

Does your game server to listen on specific port?

Please provide more information about how your game server works?

i solved it using tcpdump :) sorry i bothered. but it still amazes me, why netstat doesn't show any connections to the server (server listens on port tcp:28960)
