check inbound traffic on ports

Hello,

I'm new to the forum and would like to know how to check
inbound traffic on various port numbers.

I would also like to know how to open and close various ports
on a unix box running solaris 8.

Thanks in advance.

You can use "netstat -a" to see current inbound/outbound connections. You can close ports by stopping the associated services. If you really want to "close" them fully you will need to setup a firewall.

Since you have asked the same question a couple of times, try searching for traffic and ports in the forum - there is a link called "Netstat" which has some info on a couple of utilities that may be of use to you.
