I got nothing in return. After some time thinking, the prompt returned.

I got this:
tcp        0      0 :::22                       :::*                  
     LISTEN      4428/sshd

I pasted it as it is into google and got no results, but I did not go
digging any deeper. I figure it would be best to ask here what this
means.


Just a little question. For the rpm you used $ as the prompt sign, but
for the netstat you used #. Any difference between them, in your
usage?

Thank you so much.
