yah the scan almost never completes. most of the time it sort of hangs
and i just loose my patience and cancel the scan. i'm using linksys
wireless.

Hello,

FWIW my first thought is that the host(s) are using LaBrea -- do your
scans take a long time to complete?  I know that Nessus has a plugin
to scan for LaBrea tarpitted hosts, it may be worth looking into:
http://www.nessus.org/plugins/index.php?view=single&id=10796

Other than that, sounds like the site may be filtering traffic via a
firewall or proxy; this is a common practice.  Are you running any
kind of firewall and IDS evasion measures?  Try using the --ttl, -f,
-T, and --scan-delay options.

HTH,

hi,
i tried to nmap a site and it said that the pings are blocked and i
had to use the '-PN' switch. well the result which i got was that all
the posts were open. though if i telnet to those posts, they appear to
be closed.
can that be done? fooling that all ports are open on the server if it
can be, then how?
