Port Scan?

9 posts in this topic

I have Blues Port Scanner v5, I've scanned my IP. What does it do? What is it good for?

May be too newbish, but I'm wondering... well, thanks.

Btw, I did search google.com, and dogpile.com, all I found was "Free Port Scanner" ads.

Well, thanks.

I think there might be some DOS commands for that kinbd of thing, all I know is that depending on other programs makes you a Script Kiddie.

That is the road I have recently left and I feel super :D

I was also wondering about this, is there a DOS command for port scanning?

Port scanning tells you what ports are open on a host, an by extension may be what services are running. There is no port scanner but Nmap, and Fydor is it's prophet.

Read Wikipedia:

Thanks. That video really helped, one question though:

Would a Terminal in Linux be the same as CMD in Windows? I'm pretty sure it is, just want to confirm it.

In function, yes, they are the same thing. However many commands are totally different between windows cmd prompt and linux terminal. Example: cd (change directory) is the same for both, but to list a directory's contents it is ls (for linux) and dir (for windows). Just take a look at a good site that explains *nix commands and you'll pick em up pretty quick. Here's a link to get you started that even compares dos to linux:
