netstat...what is this stuff?


I was fooling around with some commands and all these connections popped up:

tcp 10 0 h247.75.102.166.i:32885 xmlrpc.rhn.redhat:https CLOSE_WAIT
tcp 10 0 h247.75.102.166.i:32857 xmlrpc.rhn.redhat:https CLOSE_WAIT

Can anyone explain what all this is?

One of the reasons I switched to linux is because of all the spyware, adware, etc. that always seemed to clog windows. I'm not a paranoid freak or anything, I just don't like running apps. that I never asked for.

No need to panic !

Stream sockets are local to your machine, and the sockets you see are used by Gnome.
