Description Jay 2000-10-12 20:46:02 EDT
in redhat 7.0, the command netstat -i is producing output like that of 
ifconfig, instead of the normal table format with each interface listed.  
i sent this message to the guinness list, and got no response from anyone 
inside redhat.  is this a bug??  or did someone deliberately change the 
output??

I suppose I should explain my position better.  I am looking to see if this is 
a feature change.  If indeed it is, then I don't see the point, because the 
same output can be produced by ifconfig.  As pointed out by the single beta 
tested who responded, it seems more like functionality loss and we can't really 
see a benefit to the change.  Thanks

No feature change, the previous tabular format is displayed in net-tools-1.57-1.
Dunno what's
up with net-tools-1.56-2 yet ...
Comment 3 Jay 2000-11-02 19:29:28 EST
Is there a status on this being fixed??  Its a really annoying change in 
functionality.  Thanks

I am also having the same problem with netstat.  I'm using net-tools-1.56-2

netstat 1.57 & 1.60 give tabular output
