IPTSTATE(1)                                                        IPTSTATE(1)




NAME

       iptstate - A top-like display of IP Tables state table entries


SYNOPSIS

       iptstate  [-dfhlLRst]  [-b  d|p|s|t] [-D address] [-S address] [-r sec-
       onds]


DESCRIPTION

       iptstate displays information held in the  IP  Tables  state  table  in
       real-time  in a top-like format.  Output can be sorted by any field, or
       any field reversed. Users can choose to have the output only print once
       and exit. Refresh rate is also customizable.


COMMAND-LINE OPTIONS

       -b     This  option  tells IPTState how to sort the output. The options
              are:
                  d Destination IP
                  p Protocol
                  s State
                  t TTL

       -d     Do not dynamically size the  window  based  on  terminal  sizing
              information; instead use default iptstate sizing.

       -D address
              Only show states with a destination of the IP address given.

       -f     Filter anything on loopback.

       -h     Display help message.

       -l     Resolve  all IP address to domain names. This truncates from the
              Source address from the right (you know  your  own  domain)  and
              destination  addresses  from  the left (domains are most helpful
              here). Warning: this can take a long time to startup due to  all
              the resolving.

       -L     Hide states related to DNS lookups (i.e. that have a destination
              port of 53). This is useful when in name resolution mode.

       -r seconds
              This tells IPTState what refresh rate  you  want  (ignored  when
              used with -s).

       -R     Sort in reverse.

       -s     Single-run  mode.  This  will print the state table formatted on
              the screen once without using curses.

       -S     Only show states with a source of the IP address given.

       -t     Show totals (total states, total TCP states, etc.)


INTERACTIVE OPTIONS

       The following my be used while IPTState is running to change its behav-
       ior (unless you use -s).

       d      Toggle between letting iptstate dynamically size the columns and
              using the old default sizes

       f      Toggle filtering of loopback

       l      Toggle DNS lookups on IP addresses

       m      Toggle tagging of truncated hostnames

       n      Toggle display of DNS-related entries

       q      Quit

       r      Toggle reverse sorting

       s      Change sorting to the next field

       t      Toggle display of totals

       space  Immediately update the display. Use this if you resize the  win-
              dow.

BUG REPORTS

       All  bugs should be reported to Phil Dibowitz <phil@ipom.com>, NOT your
       local distribution bug list. Please see the README and  BUGS  for  more
       information  on bug reports. Please read the WISHLIST before sending in
       features you hope to see.


NOTES

       The truncation of names in lookup  mode  happens  from  the  right  for
       source  because you most likely know your own domain name, and from the
       left for destination because  knowing  your  users  are  connection  to
       "mail.a." doesn’t help much.
