Software to Test and Probe open Firewall Ports

Hi, I'm looking for some simple software we can use to scan our internal firewall to check which outgoing ports are open and to use externally to check which incoming ports are open.  Its for security reasons rather than for anything malicious.  Any suggestions ?

Hi!

Which OS do you use? Windows?
Use SuperScan: http://www.foundstone.com/us/resources/proddesc/superscan4.htm
or nmap: http://nmap.org/download.html
