    netstat -a
    command should list down all the ports used in solaris,
    it uses symbolic names such has smtp ..etc. if you need port number, just refer the symbolic names to the /etc/services file.

    Probably the best tool for port scanning is namp. Unfortunately, nmap is not bundled with Solaris 10, although it does
    come with OpenSolaris. You could install it from There is nothing pre-built in Solaris 10 that does
    port scanning already, but of course you could make a program or script to do it for you if you were motivated enough.
