Every once in a while I will notice the network light on my laptop is flashing when I am not doing anything that I know of online that would cause this. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to see what programs are communicating with the network?

By using the ‘netstat’ command you can! Just use the following switches to get a nice list of what programs are communicating with what remote server and on what port:

netstat -tunp

You should get an output similar to this:
outputofnetstat
