Broadband (Cable, DSL, Satellite, Fiber Optics)/socket descriptor


how to get socket descriptor in linux for given port number and ip address??
Any command / procedure / software for this??

Are you asking how to open a socket or how to get a fd for one already open?

If it is the first - read the manual for open()!  If it is the second, this discussion might prove useful:
