Need a quick and dirty port scanner

Anyone know of a port scanner that can load fast and just give the basics.  I use look@lan but it takes too long to set up and can make a mess when uninstalling.  Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Try going to here you can download the scanner.  Very basic and simple.  Let me know how this works for you.  

If that does not work, try going to and doing a search for port scanners.  You will find a few there as well.

Good Luck,

Try NMAP 3.75

you can also read a short story that's basically a good tutorial on how to use NMAP to dissect and decode any of the data that it gives, also it does a fairly good job of showcasing why you see Trinity using that tool in the 2nd Matrix movie.

I use this program on an almost daily basis.

it IS command line based but it's soooo easy it's be dumb to make a GUI for it.
(A GUI is availible if you're using *nix)
For sure Nmap is the best, no need for anything else ... including the GUI... hmm never noticed it was in the Matrix 2 movie... will have to watch for that now... As a matter of fact the author of Nmap has recently made the news ....

and is very well respected by the whitehat community.

For Windows a useful program with a graphical interface is Cyberkit
If you want a free web based one, that you can run from anywhere that has access to internet...   is a secure site...

go to the sheilds up part...
