How to list files (i.e. TCP port) owned by root user?
(without sudo settings...)

TIA for your help.

Juan.

Re: lsof

Unless you are root, you can not see root's open files or TCP ports. If you are root, a simple lsof|grep root command will show you every open file for root user

Re: lsof

Hi Juan,

As root try command :

lsof -u root -i tcp

If you want to tie it down to a particular port :

lsof -u root -i tcp:23

I hope this helps.
