Show which processes are listening to which ports
Authored by: Ezra Balaraj on Apr 26, '07 07:53:17AM

Hi,

I followed your instructions and got this :-

GoogleDes 271 ezra 14u IPv4 0x023a0200 0t0 TCP localhost:9011 (LISTEN)

Can you interpret what it means? Thank you.

GoogleDes sounds as though it might be GoogleDesktop, do you happen to have that installed?

It's a process called GoogleDes with a pid of 271. The process is owned by user ezra. 14u means it is file descriptor number 14 and is open for update. The file type is an IP v4 socket and the next bit is the address in the kernel of the file structure. The 0t0 is the offset within the file which is a socket (being listened to) so probably meaningless. Finally it is a TCP socket on the localhost interface port 9011 and it's being listened to by the GoogleDes process.

Basically it means GoogleDes is listening for TCP connections on port 9011.
