It depends on the device.

Some devices with can have issues
with port scans.
It is always best to scan in a controlled manner,
before just scanning your network if you are not willing to except a
possible service impactiing event.

Prove to peers and potential
employers without a doubt that you can
actually do a proper
penetration test. IACRB CPT and CEPT certs require a
full
practical examination in order to become certified.
