Find Ports Used By Applications On Mac OS X (i.e. Netstat For Os X)

  • submit to reddit
 on os x doesn't do what you hope it does - show port numbers for applications.

Here's a snippet for your .bash_profile:

# replacement netstat cmd to find ports used by apps on OS X
alias netstat_osx="sudo lsof -i -P"
