This document describes the interfaces /proc/net/tcp and /proc/net/tcp6.
+Note that these interfaces are deprecated in favor of tcp_diag.
These /proc interfaces provide information about currently active TCP
-connections, and are implemented by tcp_get_info() in net/ipv4/tcp_ipv4.c and
-tcp6_get_info() in net/ipv6/tcp_ipv6.c, respectively.

It will first list all listening TCP sockets, and next list all established
TCP connections. A typical entry of /proc/net/tcp would look like this (split
