Okay... As expected

I am running on Debian stretch/sid.

I dont know how to watch a network while some process is connecting to
it. Please tell me I will do so.

I am running behind network-wide proxy, with auth. So I use delegate
server to create a local proxy server that takes care of auth over the
clients that do not support auth.

When I do `netstat -tc', what I see is multiple instances of
`localhost:PORT' which happens to be my local PROXY_SERVER:PORT

I cant figure out how to find some meaningful information, as yourself.
