I've come across a few XP hosts that are trying to
be sneaky with the
"Internet Firewall" feature enabled.  I've seen
responses from NMAP SYN
and ACK scanning while seeing next to nothing on
Nessus.  Also, I am
unable to uncover any additional information about
the hosts and
available services.  Do you have any tips on beating
the XP "firewall?"
Perhaps there is a post in the archives.


I don't have access to an XP personal firewall to try
it, but you might try specifying a source port for the
scan using nmap's -g switch.  If the firewall doesn't
keep state, you can probably SYN scan through port 20,
21, 53, etc.
