I am looking for script to check for remote solutions across a domain (vpn, rdp access, etc). A probe of remote services if you will.

Hope this is not too much to ask for.

Nmap will just get the ports that are open. I want to know what remote services are available on the network

Well, ports that are not open are not available.
It doesn't matter if your application tries to access them or that NMAP tries to access them.
UNTIL the port connects. (open ports for nmap)
Then the service process DID accept a connection from the accepted connection onward it depends on the port.
What do you want to test.. if there is an FTP service behind port 21 and a HTTP service behind port 80?
In that case you need other tools that KNOW some of these protocols...

Oh BTW. If you get ICINGA or NAGIOS (they just test the same as NMAP btw, but the reporting formats differ).
They have tooling like check_tcp to verify if a tcp services can be accessed. or check_http to verify a get request succeeds.  But then you have to specify each test and it's not bulk testing like nmap does.
for reference:
http://www.icinga.org/    - uses the same formats as, actually it's a more actively developped fork of, nagios.
http://www.nagios.org/   - proven, but lost some of its traction as a lot of developers went with icinga.

Partially answered my question. Came up with a different approach, thanks.
