Determining a Socket's Owner

Is it possible to determine which process is connected to
a particular socket?  In particular, I'd like to know which
server processes are handling which connections.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is very system dependant; under modern Unix variants (Linux, FreeBSD, etc) you can use "fuser" to get this information.  If you are looking for code, the source is freely available.

For Operating Systems where you don't have this luxury, look for a program called "lsof", which can do the same thing (and more). Once again, you can examine the source to see how it is done (which varies from system to system).
