    (am ru itnning it from the command prompt and running xp)

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "C:\Documents and Settings\mhodgson\Desktop\socket.py", line 5, in ?
    import socket
    File "C:\Documents and Settings\mhodgson\Desktop\socket.py", line 28, in ?

    IndexError: list index out of range

    This is your key.... It's actually a very, very simply solution...

    Try just sys.argv

    In python [x] denotes the x+1 item in a list (because we start counting with 0)

    so sys.argv[ 1 ] is looking for the 1 + 1 (2nd) item.. Compare that with the first google result for sys.argv

    5.12. Handling command line arguments

    So now we've got command line arguments and a list... well command line arguments are a list aren't they...

    nmap -sV -P0 -O 192.168.1.1 (that's just a list of flags and arguments)

    Perhaps then the script is looking for command lines to follow it... Looking at the script I see 4 variables with sys.argv assignments... I bet that means 4 items...

    host = 1
    Port = 2
    timeout = 3
    connCount = 4

    I'll tell you that scriptname = 0

    so perhaps it's python scriptname host port timeout connCount

    Peace,
    HT

    ok now i am thinking
    so i typed
    socket.py -198.162.2.2 -80 -3 -4
    and this did not return any errors
    so to see if anything was being sent i fired up etherial (wireshark!!)
    ran the script and nothing seemed be sent?

    You shouldn't have the - in front of each one..

    As for the initial error.. Is this Python from Python.org or ActiveState Python (they have differences)...

    python is from python.org green snakey icons all over my desktop

    if i do not put in the -'s i get all those errors
    have tried to do it by taking some out
    and still getting all the errors

    however have learnt a lot about what a sys.avgr s are!

    hang on

    with -'s in

    C:\Documents and Settings\mhodgson\Desktop>socket.py -192.168.2.2 -80 -3 -4

    C:\Documents and Settings\mhodgson\Desktop>
