Java's networking capabilities

Posted by mrnorman [send private reply] at June 29, 2002, 12:20:17 AM

Is there a way to access a port's info. on a local machine (i.e. if it's connected, the remote IP, connection status, etc) in java without placing a socket on that port. I ask mainly because I want to write a program that can access port info. from ports that are already connected (similar to netstat). Can java do this, or should I just choose one of those NON-PLATFORM-INDEPENDANT languages?

There's nothing in the standard Java classes that would let you do that, no.
