omitted a few asterisks, basically all the empty spots are asterisks
what is up with all the UDP connections listening on any port?
is that what this means?
the internet activity that should be going in is that i connected via wpa to wifi at a small restaurant visited a few pages, checking mail from a few different accounts, no new mail or downloads where done.
?

Mine isn't too far off that. Dns/nslookup/google the ones you can (google.co.uk/… is worrying but inconclusive.) –  tobylane Jan 29 '11 at 22:54

You should be able to troubleshoot it if you know what process makes those connections, there should be a parameter which you can use to show the processes. In Windows it is -o, if not, you could look for a tool that does this...

cool, i did a 'man netstat' on mac osx in a bash terminal; the command on osx is 'netstat -A' and it showed some more info; i think everything is fine... –  bboyreason Jan 31 '11 at 4:17
