iptstate provides live iptables monitoring

iptstates shows all iptables activity in a top-style display:

IPTables - State Top Version: 1.3 Sort: SrcIP s to change sorting Source Destination Proto State TTL 192.168.1.1,3834 193.40.133.134,123 udp 0:00:28 192.168.1.1,3822 216.58.31.84,123 udp 0:02:53 192.168.1.1,3828 216.52.237.153,123 udp 0:02:47 192.168.1.10,43496 192.168.1.26,22 tcp ESTABLISHED 119:59:59 192.168.1.11,57252 71.87.212.168,8080 tcp ESTABLISHED 29:43:53 192.168.1.25,57505 209.40.99.8,80 tcp ESTABLISHED 3:48:32

iptstate has a number of useful commands, such as setting the refresh interval, sorting by different columns values, resolving domain names, and a number of interactive commands to use while it's running. Read the fine man page to learn them all.
