netstat -p recoded (totaly useless..)

p=$(netstat -nate 2>/dev/null | awk '/LISTEN/ {gsub (/.*:/, "", $4); if ($4 == "4444") {print $8}}'); for i in $(ls /proc/|grep "^[1-9]"); do [[ $(ls -l /proc/$i/fd/|grep socket|sed -e 's|.*\[\(.*\)\]|\1|'|grep $p) ]] && cat /proc/$i/cmdline && echo; done
Ok so it's rellay useless line and I sorry for that, furthermore that's nothing optimized at all... At the beginning I didn't managed by using netstat -p to print out which process was handling that open port 4444, I realize at the end I was not root and security restrictions applied ;p It's nevertheless a (good ?) way to see how ps(tree) works, as it acts exactly the same way by reading in /proc So for a specific port, this line returns the calling command line of every thread that handle the associated socket
