How to do port scanning in Solaris 10?

I was using netcat(nc) command which is third party tool to do port scanning, Does solaris has inbuilt tool to do the same which comes with default installation. Please let me know if there is any? Thanks in advance!

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.

What are you trying to accomplish?
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.
