Unix services, ports, operating system and programs

By winthrop.polk ·
For any tpyical windows installation, you can:
1.get operating system information by right clicking my computer-->properties.
2.get a list of open/listening ports by typing "netstat -a" in the command prompt.
3. get a list of services by typing "services.msc" in the command prompt
4.get a list of programs by going into the control panel-->add/remove programs.

How do you do these 4 items, simply, on the majority of UNIX installations?

Partial answer

Not sure how to check the OS version but...
Open ports use netstat<br/>
list of running services ps -ef<br/>
installed programs use pkginfo -l

Some more

by vhrocker In reply to Unix services, ports, ope ...

System info: uname -a

ports: netstat...

services: ps ; top ; and/or look in /etc/rc.d

programs: pkginfo is a good start, though each system may handle this differently.

Check with your OS docs and man pages for more specifics.

Man pages: man <command> {i.e. man top; man ls; etc.}

I'm no 'Pro', but I can move around pretty good. Are you a newbie, student, or what?
