Description Alexander L. Belikoff 2001-02-03 22:58:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686; Nav)

netstat manpage describes an option -L (sorthand for --listening) as the
one showing  the listening sockets. While --listening does work as
expected, -L doesn't. Instead,
netstat comlains about an unknown option

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. netstat --listening                 # works
2. netstat -L                             # DOESN'T WORK


Actual Results:  netstat: invalid option -- L

Expected Results:  Active Internet connections (only servers)

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-02-05 22:35:40 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.

Comment 2 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-06 16:38:09 UTC
This is a man page typo, it should be '-l', not '-L'. Will fix.
