Does anyone know of a good free port scanning software package?  It will need to be compatible with Windows XP and/or 7.

However you may want to move to the "free" version of Nessus as it will do vulnerability scan as well as port scan

No installation is needed - just save the program anywhere you like and run it from there.

@TvMpt:

Is this more an answer to the authors other question looking for an IP scanner?

It does look like a good product though.  :)

Try TCPView, which is part of the SysInternals Suite.
It will show the status of all endpoints (sockets, which = IP+port#), including what the socket is on the other end of the connection.
