Description Alexander L. Belikoff 2001-02-03 17:58:01 EST
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)

We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Comment 2 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-06 11:38:09 EST
This is a man page typo, it should be '-l', not '-L'. Will fix.
