Re: Different Outputs using different Portscanners...

Hi Nick,

nmap is looking for SYN whereas Superscan probably just connects.

You also have to realise that nmap does not scan every port neither does
Superscan unless you tell it too.

Subject: Different Outputs using different Portscanners...


Hi,

I used two different portscanners to scan my labs range and a got a
variety of results:

(1) nmap using -sS flag on Linux
(2) Superscan in windows

Superscan seemed to pick up some of the fixup protocols that are in
enabled (but not necessarily in use), but nmap didnt.. Any thoughts or
similar experiences?

The firewall used is a soho PIX 506E -6.2(2)

Gards,
Nick
