Get outgoing connections of an QProcess

  • Hey,

    I want to get the outgoing connections of an QProcess (or PID). I have heard something about netstat but I don't want to use a command line tool (only if there is no other way). Is there an way to solve this using Qt? Or do I need an 3rd Party library? Hope anyone can help.

    AFAIK there is not. Not unless the process you are spawning writes information like that out to stdout. Then you can read that and parse it.

    I have used a QProcess for running pppd and it outputs information about connections so I was able to parse that output for the info I need.

    But QProcess itself doesn't have any way of detecting what connections the process is making.
