Re: detecting host with stateful firewall

Hi Martin,

This might be a case where hooking up wireshark will provide more
answers then nmap can.  For instance, if the host is set to only
accept packets from one source and Silently drop the others there's
little nmap can do.  Use wireshark or look at the SPI, UPnP, or
connection tables on the gateway or whomever is doing NAT to see who
the host is talking to and on what port(s).

I have a host in network, which I know is generating constantly
~0.2Mbps of traffic and has ingress MAC address present both on switch
port and in router ARP table as well. It does not respond to nmap ping
(nmap -sP -T4 I.I.P.P). I tried "nmap -PN -F I.I.P.P" and "nmap -PN
-T4 I.I.I.P" as well, but still there were no replies from the host.
So I did "nmap -PN -T4 -p- --reason I.I.P.P" and "nmap -PN -T4 -sT -p-
--reason I.I.P.P" and even those gave me no replies(all the ports are
filtered according to nmap and I can confirm this with tcpdump as
there wasn't a single package from the host). If there is constantly
some traffic associated with this IP(I'm able to see this from the
router), then shouldn't nmap get reset at least from high-number
ephemeral ports which have established connections with servers? Is
there any other scan type, which might give a better results with
responses from ephemeral ports?
