Pipe the results to a text file and grep for open is the first thing
that comes to my mind

Subject: scanning for a specific service with nmap

guys I how could I use nmap to scan the network for a specific
server/service without having every single host alive coming back in the
scan but only that machine in which the service is running... for
example, let's say I want to scan the network to find only MSSQL server
which by default uses port 1433, in that case I would use nmap with
something like this...

nmap -sSV -P0 -p T:1433

this scan eventually will detect the machine that is running the SQL
server, the only problem is that it returns every single host alive,
only that port status is close as it should be expected, but I wonder if
it is possible to only have returned the host running SQL service.

Thanks in advance
