Understanding netstat -rn in solaris

Understanding netstat -rn in solaris

Can anyone please explain the output of the command netstat -rn? I've been trying to understand it from a long time.

RE: Understanding netstat -rn in solaris

Have you tried 'man netstat' and read the man pages?

Per the man pages (of Linux - I assume Solaris is similar):

-r: Display  the kernel routing tables. See the description in route(8) for details.  netstat -r and route -e produce the same output.

-n:  Show  numerical addresses instead of trying to determine symbolic host, port or user names
