    Open Ports

    I was wondering if there is an online site that can tell you what ports are not being blocked on a network PC. Sites like Sygate's tell you about the obvious ones like FTP and Telnet ports, but what about those not mentioned on these tests? Is there a way to scan yourself for an open port?

    If you have another internet connection (even dialup) you can use a tool like NMap to do a full scan yourself. I believe www.dslreports.com does full scans , why don't you just check them out.
    Edit- Look under tools for the scans.

    NMap is one of the better, more well-known ones: http://www.insecure.org/
