    the command line switch -rn will basically show you the routing table of the machine in numerical format.

    Nothing to worry about.

    It is basically showing how packets are routed to/from your machine.

    Other people may be able to explain more than me.

    You had me confused there for a while. I thought that -rn looked like -m. What do those version numbers (5.2 and 6.2) refer to?
    But as jasonlambert says, that output is your routing table. Similar results can preferrably be obtained with "route -n". Do you want me to explain the output to you or were you just wondering what it was?
