Are you running Windows Firewall under XP? If so - I've had difficulties
scanning machines (Nmap, Superscan, etc) with any sort of software firewall
enabled (Windows Firewall, Sygate, ZA, etc). Try disabling your firewall and
see what happens.

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.
