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

Angry ip Scanner

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

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.
