1 Answer 1

If the client is "Linux", on the client:

#netstat -ant -p | grep ""

You would find the process id/name which connect to the server on port 5280.

On the server:

#netstat -ant -p | grep ""

You would find the client ip which connect to the server on port 5280.

BTW, you can not find the client process id/name on the server.
