You can substitute the grep -v ^unix with the-t parameter of netstat if you don't want to see sockets as blast showed us an example of. I like to see the processes generating the traffic, the open ports listening for traffic, show numerical IPs instead of hostnames, hide socket info, and also show UDP traffic. This is already on here, but.. Netstat, show all network traffic, listening ports, process IDs (requires root), list numerical IPs (-n), and also include UDP traffic: netstat -plntu
