    Port Watcher?

    Is their any way to get a program on your server that is either online or offline too that you can watch ports for example

    So you can monitor ports on your server?

    -- My friend asked me this so I though I'd ask. Im curious too to be honest..

    Perhaps for intrusion detection. Are you looking to monitor your own server ports and what's connected to them (good) or other servers ports (bad)?

    Are you just trying to find out what ports your server is listening for connections on?

    run netstat -l

    and if you want a web version... write a simple shell script to output that...

    echo "<HTML>"
    echo "<HEAD><TITLE>Open Ports</TITLE></HEAD>"
    echo "<BODY>"
    echo "<PRE>"
    netstat -l
    echo "</PRE>"
    echo "</BODY>"
    echo "</HTML>"

    If not.. then I don't understand either what you're looking for

    I want to be able to monitor my own customer ports, lets say I have something on

    And I want to monitor it and be able to watch it and check out its downtime(if possible) just be able to make sure its online. What program can do that that I can also view online? Like visit http://???.com/customport_uptime/ or somin like that

    Do you mean something like nagios? And then run nrpe on each of the servers to check that all expected services are running?

    I do that with servers/services I look after and it's all linked up to a cell phone with gnokii.
