This is a cross-platform command line tool for obtaining live, rudimentary network connection data on a computer system. This tool was designed for network and security analysts to easily view connections on a system as they occur. It will display useful information about network connections that utilities like netstat typically won't give you such as what time the connection was made, the exact command that created the connection, and the user that connection was made by. Note for Windows users: Detailed process information will not display unless you're running as NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. An easy way to drop into a system-level command prompt is to use PsExec from SysInternals. Run psexec -i -s cmd.exe as Administrator and then run histstat.
