This is extremely useful for testing which ports are blocked from
inside a firewalled environment however I can see how scanning 65k
ports could probably piss off whoever is hosting the server as it
would probably garner a lot more activity per user and a lot heavier
use. Sure if the load becomes too heavy you can just tank the idea and
take the domain name offline.
I myself have an amazon cloud server setup for just this and I've
found it dead handy but I thought it'd be a nice idea for nmap to have
an official one.
Thanks for the suggestion. If you're OK with other people scanning
the machine you set up for this purpose, you're certainly welcome to
announce the IP address here on nmap-dev and/or other email addresses
or social networks you might use. You can even give it a memorable
DNS name so people might recall it in a pinch.
