XP SP2 is incompatible with NMAP as support for TCP sends over RAW
sockets in SP2 has been removed.

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.
