Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.

If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

TCP/IP Network Status Utility (netstat)
(Page 6 of 6)

Sample Windows netstat Output

The output from the Windows netstat program is fairly similar to that of the UNIX utility when the same or similar options are given, but the UNIX version usually provides more details. I have shown in Table 302 an example illustrating TCP/IP statistics on my home Windows XP machine, using “-p icmp” to restrict the output to ICMP stats only. Table 303 shows the routing table display from netstat (which I modified slightly to fit the size limits of the table.) You would get similar output as these from the UNIX “netstat -s -p icmp” or “netstat -r” commands, but additional information would be provided.

Key Concept: TCP/IP implementations include the netstat utility to allow information about network status to be displayed. On UNIX systems, netstat is a full-featured program with many options arranged into option groups, each of which shows a particular type of information about the operation of TCP/IP protocols. On Windows systems, netstat is somewhat more limited in function but still allows a considerable amount of information to be displayed.
