The Solaris operating system uses "netstat" to show the status of network activity, including open ports. When used alone, the "netstat -an" command will show all the open ports on the system. The "-a" option shows the state of all the ports. The "-n" option shows the network addresses as numbers rather than symbols. Combined with the "grep" command, you can see the status of a specific port.
