I read the following in an article:
"By default, when the TCP/IP Monitor is started, the TCP/IP Monitor listens for requests from port 8081(V4 server) or 9081(V5 server) and then it forwards these requests to the application server on port 8080(V4 server) or 9080 (V5 server). For responses from the application server, the TCP/IP Monitor forwards them back. The response time is the elapsed time that it takes for a request to arrive at the TCP/IP Monitor until the response is forwarded from the server."
The above is a utility in WSAD.
Is this utility available in WAS as well.
Can i listen to incoming requests over TCP/IP on WAS using this utility without writing my own custom java class which first listens to the TCP/IP request and then converts it into a http request and send it to WAS for further processing?

No. The TCP monitor is only a part of WSAD and it only listens for HTTP requests on one port and forwards them (after logging) to another port.
