port availability- linux redhat 5


Hi All,

I am using "lsof -i:<Port Number>" & "netstat -anp| grep <port number>" commands to check
the free ports available on my Linux(redhat) machine.

But the problem with above commands is that, it wont show the process details of a particular port
if it is running from an user account which is different with which i logged in.

Do we have any command or work around by which we can check whether a port is owned by any process (or any other user account )
even if we dont have root access.

Please suggest

Pretty sure it's not possible, maybe you can run it via sudo securely?

Actually, if you try eg netstat as non-root, it actually tells you this
Code:
 netstat -tanp
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info
 will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)

I am not able to see the non-owned process info for a particular port,so only ROOT can check which all ports are owned by users

you got the options wrong, it should be -pant. Sadly -s can't be used, otherwise I'd get to write -pants a dozen times a day. ;-)

Where does it say that's an error? It clearly says that you need to be root... what else are we suppose to add?

I mean without being root does this mean that i cannot locate the process running on particular port if it is owned by differnt user id with which i logged in ?

yes, that would be a privilege violation if it were possible.
