Re: netstat foreign ip address’s found

Foreign Addresses are nothing but the IP address and port number of the remote computers which are connected to the socket in our system. They are actually an open UDP ports which are not connected directly to any of the single addressed. They are responsible for sending data across the network to the destination. This kind of protocol is mostly used to perform video and audio streaming as it is faster than the other modes.
