The 6000 and the 177udp have to do with X windows. The 1024 and 1025 are PROBABLY outgoing connections to something like telnet or ssh. Port 631 is listed as Internet Printing Protocol, I am not exactly sure what that is

To find out what is using each port type "netstat --inet -avp".

Edman. I looked at your last question. In this question you're suggesting that there was a problem with the help you got. It seemed that TK Tech was clear in what he had to say. When he posted his response, it was immedately emailed to you.

If you didn't understand his responce or needed more, the next step would have been to respond to what he had posted, and either he, or some of the other experience users would have given followups.

If you're still having problems along that line, or found an alternate route, everyone is interested. The next new user will look at the thread and learn from it. Personally, I use the search feature as reference, and would be glad to have your experience included with a good resolution to the question.

Looking at the time stamp on your post and the reponse you got, you had a reply within 4 hours of your post in the wee hours. I personally was looking at the post and about to respond when I notice while I was figuring out the best way of describing, there was a response. If I had dreamed it weren't clear to you, I would have added more.

Please post a followup on the thread you feel you're still having problems with. There are things that could be added, but we have to know what you're looking for. We could right a book on every subject but still miss the person's immediate problem.
