Question netstat remote computer


Hi,

is there a way to netstat -tc a remote computer by ip? At work we have an email server running under windows so every time I need to see the connected ports I have to VNC to the server then open TCPVIEW. I would love to do it from my machine without connecting to the email server.
thanks

If you install openssh on the server you can connect to that via ssh and return the information. Alternately you could use an snmp daemon and agent to pull information that way.

ssh is what we all use when we want a secure cxn. Its about as good as it gets.... Of course you have to decide whether to use a passwd or ssh-keys, and keep it/them secure.

OpenSSH is as secure as your authentication method so long as you keep it up to date. PuTTY is a SSH client, there are a few dozen of them for windows. OpenSSH is the server process.

On windows, I've had good luck with this version.

You could just use rdesktop also and leave the session open rather than logging out... would make it notably faster getting in, although you still have to acquire the information.
