SUMMARY: a command available for checking which IP is accessing my web server?

Date: Fri Mar 05 1999 - 17:05:40 CST

Original question:
Is there a simple command available to check who (the IP#) is accessing
this web server (Sol2.5.1 with sun web server software) NOW? Like "w"
to check who is logon.

          HTTP is basically stateless. A client opens a socket, grabs a page, and disconnects.

        To find out who has an active connection to the webserver at the very INSTANT you run a command, use "netstat".
netstat -a |grep http
netstat -n| grep ".80"

        For past connections, check the http log file.
        You may also download lsof from
