netstat for 032?

3rd Party Package Requesting

Postby rbw » Sun Oct 19, 2003 8:30 am

People seem to use netstat to check on their configurations, and I know it is available in freesco 027 because I can see it in the /bin directory.

I cannot seem to find it in my freesco 032 file system.

Where should I look?

Also, if I copy the executable file from freesco 027 to freesco 032 will it work?

Kind Regards, Robert

<a href='' target='_blank'>here</a>The netstat binary on 027 is stored on disk in compressed format. You'll notice that /bin/netstat is in fact a (huge) script and not a linux binary at all. What happens on 027 is that the compressed binary /opt/netstat is uncompressed when needed and then executed.

I totally forgot to add these network gems (netstat, traceroute, tcpdump) in my utils_1.0 package (wait for utils_1.1 ;)).
If you can get your hands on a zipslack 3.9 disribution you can install the binaries from there on 03x.

If you only need netstat you can download it <a href='' target='_blank'>here</a>

Install for 03x:

[Linux] cd /pkg/sbin
[Linux] snarf -n <a href='' target='_blank'></a>
[Linux] chmod +x netstat
