output of "netstat -s | egrep '(active|passive)'"?


If you run this command on your computer, how many active and passive connections openings are you typically supposed to have? Specifically, for a firewalled home PC behind a wifi router/cable modem combination. Can someone explain the purpose of this command?

I would say there are no typical values, it highly depends on the actual tasks running on that host.
