RE: superscan on win2k vs winxp

If you have any need to do this from a fully updated windows box. Just
to submit it can be done rather easily. I use an custom abstraction
layer that interfaces directly into WinPCAP on windows and sufficiently
can send any packets I want. This works fine on a SP2 machine. Just in
case anyone was looking for new way to do it. I was lucky as this was my
solution before even moving to XP, and still it works ducky.

Hello,

On nmap.org you'll be able to download the latest nmap which is IMHO a
better tool and you'll be able to read about the differences that were
implemented in the SP2 TCP/IP stack which causes the problem you
encounter and how to partly by-pass them.

Hope it helps,
Guillaume

Subject: superscan on win2k vs winxp

hello friends!!

I am using superscan to scan hosts for possible open ports.But
surprsingly ,if i scan it from windows 2000 and windows xp with sp2 the
results differ.

When i scan from xp it gives no open ports and when i scan from windows
2000,it gives certain ports open.

Does anyone have any idea regarding this?

If tcp/ip stack is implemented differently on both the  opertaing
systems then can anyone tell me how i can get tcp/ip stack info on my xp
and 2k machine?

I think superscan is multithreaded ,can anyone suggest me other
multithreaded scanners?

Regards,
Pavan Shah.
