    ESTABLISHED connections,,what are they..??


    Hi
    I am just new to Linux,,I am still trying to find out what active connections I should allow to the net,,?

    When I type in 'netstat -a' I get a list of connections...

    There are 3-4 main ones,,and about 30 other established connections that I dont understand..

    under..
    --Active UNIX domain sockets (servers and established)--

    there are names like ICE-unix,,,dcop,,,ksocket,,famsocket,,ORBIT and X11...can somone explain to me what the hell these things are doing and what security I should take as they have a lot of ESTABLISHED connections,,,,

    PS. I have IPTABLES locked up fairly safely until I understand
    what services or processes are taking place..

    Any links or tips to point me in the right direction would be appreciated,,,I have done a bit of google but I am obviously searching for the wrong subjects.

    Thank you
