Learning about IDS
Thanx 4 the url. I had blindly used the netstat line as it had been presented. Even in my man page the distinction of Connect, Waiting for, and Disconnect was not as obvious. Sometimes the man page is far too specific and lacks sufficient explanation unless one is totally awash with the subject.
I still don't understand why the I-nodes are not numerically sequenced?
Regarding the protocols; I would think that is not useful here since I want the state of the port and a port cannot as far as I know be connected in multiple protocols simultaneously only sequentially if that.
In fact I am not sure why I am getting this dozen or so since the last grep specifies a particular port which is not any of the I-nodes shown tho it was not necessary to list all of them. Thanks tho 4 the url again
