Hello and thanks for the MANY quick replies.

The original question was:

The overwhelming response was to download and install tcp wrappers.
I was hoping Solaris 2.6 had a built in function to track all tcp activity
along with disk usage, system performance, memory, etc, but I guess
that would be just "pie in the sky".

Anyway, thank you all again for your responses. There were just too
many to list individually!
