Installing and Using the TCPTrack Network Console Monitor

Ubuntu / Debian installation command:

sudo apt-get install tcptrack

An example of a startup with a network interface:

sudo tcptrack -i eth0

Program Documentation:

man tcptrack

I will describe some startup keys:
-d (monitor new connections, do not detect existing ones before tcptrack starts)
-f (fast mode)
-h (help)
-i name (specifying the name of the network interface)
-T file (analyze data from a file)
-p (do not switch the network interface to promiscuous mode)
-r seconds (wait the specified number of seconds before removing closed connections from the screen, standard 2)
-v (display program version)

Function Key List:
p – pause
q – output
s – sort
