For staters haveyou used Nmap also the host that is being scanned do you have a firewall on it, and if so is it setup 
to drop any icmp packets?

If you use nmap with a no ping scann and then look for tcp fiirst then udp you should get some results.

Nmap -P0 -sT 
               -sU for udp.

Subject: Port Scanning Issues

A Chairde,

   Havin, some issues with scanning stacks on my system.

1. Using Superscan4 ,  I scan stack UDP-TCP 1-65534 , Sometimes I 

get no ports open , another time I get 49159 UDP Ports open, only get port report, no attempt made to open any ports 
... , when get open ports , I always get 49159 UDP Ports ...... , use the scanner at 250msecs , takes around 16 hours 
to finish.

2. Using Languard, Nessus and Retina , get different scans from each tool, any ideas why, how do I find out real ports 
open.. differences can be 10,000 ports
