Hi all,
      I faced a problem running two tools producing totally 
different results.
What i did is described as ...I ran nmap on a IP with these parameters
: syn scan,dont ping,very verbose ,aggressive scan..it showed 
ports 80 n 1723 filtered.I ran this scan from Linux box.
Same time ,i used netwag to scansame ip which showed these ports open.

What can be the problem..??please help.

Using your packet sniffer of choice ( tcpdump, ethereal, etc ) what
packets do you see going to and from the host?

Also, in case anyone wants to reproduce the issue, what versions of
Netwox and nmap are you using?
