Aide Memoire - remembering how to identify which process is hogging which port
For some reason, I always forget this so am hoping that, by writing it down here in my blog, I'll actually remember.
Having run a command such as: -
$ netstat aon
$ netstat -nlp
to see that something is listening on port 80, it's then useful to see what the process actually is: -
$ lsof -i :80
$ lsof -i tcp:80
will show you the way to go.
lsof is an immensely useful command, as blogged here.
Perhaps I should use this as a future tip if I'm ever invited back to @ThisWeekInLotus.
