I've got a feeling that one of the scripts running during the above scan you gave as an example is causing a problem for you (either bruteTelnet or anonFTP), would you mind running the following similar scan:

nmap -sS -p21,23 --script=bruteTelnet,anonFTP --script-trace -d3 -- log-errors

I'm not sure whether nse scripts are meant to obey host-timeout rules or not, but neither of these scripts should take very long, certainly not the times you're seeing and using script-trace should help identify what is causing the massive delay.




I ran the nmap command for ~11 minutes and the output file is ...

[scanner () clouseau ~]$ ls -lt | head
total 2231076
-rw-rw-r--   1 scanner scanner 2207219285 Dec 15 21:52 namp_test.out

Wow, that's big. Looks like a loop that never ends. Here is the first minute ...

There is no firewall at the Fermilab border, so you can run the command if you wish.

Thanks for your help.
