    when it comes to port scanning, nmap is the only way to go.

    when it comes to blocking portscanns though, check out portsentry

    When you connect to your ISP, you are potentially opening your computer to the world. There are \'naughty people\' out there who enjoy breaking into other people\'s computers. Give some thought to the security of your computer...

    I agree with the Nmap statements. Also, Shields up is a great free resource to test your system from the outside in: https://grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

    I have to agree on nmap.
    It is probably the most used.

    I have read something about sscan though. Does anyone have experience with that ?

    I am not sure nmap is what you want!
    NMAP is a scanner that detect port on remote PC, but what if you want to know open ports in your home PC?

    An answer is Shields UP at GRC.com, it will tell u what port are open on your computer. I don't know if it exhaustive or not? But it may help u.

    An other way is to ask a friend to scan your PC with NMAP(NMAP is also available for M$)!
