Connection Monitoring Software


In Windows, I use a freeware app called ItCan Net Monitor, which shows all open TCP/IP connections to and from my machine. It's simple and doesn't blow you away with a million features.

Is there an equivalent in Linux for X? I've seen a few, but they seem to be overkill as they list socket connections and other extraneous information. I'm just after something that shows active TCP/IP connections, nothing more.

Thanks in advance.

you can try knemo for the KDE website. It gives you the nice flashing monitors or modem lights. You can then select what info you wish to see
