Using netstat on Solaris I can see the connections but not the users that own the connections.
Linux's netstat has an option -e to show which user owns which connection.
How do i do that on Solaris ?
Thanks

I typed "man netstat" on my SunOS 5.5.1 workstation, and found that
it seemed that Solaris does not support the function you have descriped above.
That means you cannot know who actually own the connections on Solaris
through the command "netstat". :-(

Well i found out there is a tool lsof that does the job:
ftp://vic.cc.purdue.edu/pub/tools/unix/lsof/lsof.tar.gz

It is really good althought I couldn't get it to work on a AFS system.

lsof is GREAT!

it'd be simple to write a tool to cache lsof stats every 1-5 minutes (you decide) to a file in /tmp and use that to grep info out such as who's listening on what port, etc..

I could do that in perl in 5 minutes..
