System: Plain standlone home PC (Win 95) with dial-up 56K modem. Before connection to the net there's no output. Now as I understand it when I connect to a site I should only see that site's information, as a connection. When I connect to a mail server or news server I see additional lines for them. So as long as I do "netstat -a" frequently and see output I expect everything *ought* to be OK? Is a firewall a more advanced version of "netstat" in layman terms?
