watch 'netstat -anptu |egrep "^Proto|:80 "'
Shows updated status in a terminal window for connections to port '80' in a human-friendly form. Use 'watch -n1' to update every second, and 'watch -d' to highlight changes between updates. If you wish for status updates on a port other than '80', always remember to put a space afterwards so that ":80" will not match ":8080".

watch -dn2 'netstat -anptu | egrep "^Proto|:80" | sort' will watch on ports 80 and 8080 and sort output if u have a lot of connections, highliting changes with update interval 2 sec.

Ovidiu: When you say vhost, do you mean a protocol thing, like the domain part of the "RCPT TO:" lines of SMTP? In that case, you'll need packet inspection -- you're better off doing a 'tail -f logfile |grep ' instead.

ilrandir : I already mentioned using other values for "-n" in the comment.
