    Problem with nmap


    Hi All,

    I am using the following two different version of nmap.

    1. nmap -p 8079 <IP>
    2. nmap <IP>

    When I explicitely mention the port # 8079, it shows its open but second one doesn't show anything about this port. Please help.

    Refer to /etc/services
    I think its default port for nothing.

    Check what network services are running on your computer and check thier ports
    Never make any misteaks.

    From the man page

    By default, Nmap scans all ports up to and including 1024
    as well as higher numbered ports listed in the nmap-services file
    for the protocol(s) being scanned.
