Re: [vox] A web-based port scanner....?

hi richard,

whenever you're looking for an application, go to www.freshmeat.net.
it's quite complete and even includes things like popularity (to see
what everyone else is using) and screen shots.  it's a well designed
site.  the administrators have been very responsive to my emails about
projects that have died or changed licenses.

a search on freshmeat for "scanner" should yield (untested) at least
two port scanners -- nmap (line based, hacker industry standard) and
saint (web based, aging.  never worked too well for me, confusing

satan is (as i understand it) a precursor to saint.

there's also something called sara which is like saint/satan.  these are
the people that put out tara, which is a cops-like system level security
auditor.  i've used tara and it's quite thorough.  a bit too through.

> Back when I was setting up my home network, I frequently made use of a web-based port scanner to check security.  It was great: it would scan the system and send me a report via e-mail letting me know of open ports and other conditions to address.  Wasn't a perfect tool, of course, but a good starting place.
> I've lost the bookmark, and because a friend of mine informed me that there's an odd port open on my system which I can't seem to address with my firewall software, I'd like to check it again.
> Does anyone know the tool that I'm talking about?  Or something like it?
