Thank  you for your help and answers guys and thousands of apologies.

I guess I was rather incomplete in describing the network that I am
testing.

According to the network's administrator, there is no firewall ( not
even a Personal one) or IDS that are filtering the traffic towards my
target.

It was approved that the application that is filtering my connections to
the seemed to be open ports, is the management and control application
(I have a rough guess that it's some kind of IBM's Tivoli app.).

I can port scan the target, but I cant run any scanner to build a rough
image of security status of the system.

I am getting my hands dirty for the last week, but with no avail. 

Does anyone has any idea about methods to bypass management apps (maybe
I need to try and DoS it)?


Thanks again, 
Ronen.

Subject: pen testing management and control system


Hi All,

I am pen testing a windows 2000 advanced server, with some kind of
management and control software (e.g. Tivoli, Netcool). The system has
IIS 6.0 running with lockdown enabled.

When I tried to run nessus, my ip was blocked for quite a long time.
same happened with nikto.

Further more, although quite a few ports were found to be open on the
remote machine, the management and control application is blocking the
most of them while allowing access only to the following: 21, 23(ms
telnet server), 25(Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version:
6.0.2600.1106), 80 (Microsoft-IIS/6.0), 110 (Microsoft Windows POP3
Service Version 2.0), 3389.


The system is also running Hummingbird Exceed.

Does anyone have any idea? I've kind of reached a dead end. 
Below is the results of an Nmap, if it helps.

Thank you very much for your help-

Ronen.
