How can I format netstat output so I have a list of TCP connections made to the server?

A bit like this: 51780 51444 51447

The closest I got was six columns with all the values from the netstat, but I just need the origin IP of the established connections using netstat -na -t | grep ESTABELECIDO

  • To what server? Incoming connections? – Jesse_b May 11 '18 at 19:44
  • is netstat -p tcp -n | awk '$NF ~ "ESTABELECIDO"{print $5}' sort of what you are looking for? – Jesse_b May 11 '18 at 19:47
  • I updated the post, sorry for that @jesse_b – Bruno Aioria May 11 '18 at 19:48

For the formatted output , you can use awk and tr

netstat -na -t | awk '/ESTABELECIDO/{print $4}' | tr ':' ' '

As, you asked origin IP and origin IP will be from our machine only, so I mentioned field $4 in awk, otherwise use $5 in awk for other machine IP address.

  • @Jesse_b Yes you are right, i have edited my answer to reflect your suggestion – Arushix May 16 '18 at 5:34
