whatPorts is a multi-threaded port scanner written in cocoa
Version: 1.1whatPorts is a multi-threaded port scanner that scans for open socket connections, which tend to be servers of some sort running, whether system services, authorized or unauthorized server, trojans, etc. and tries to report the services running on the open ports.
Operating System: Mac OS X
The scanner will cycle the ports on the host entered, and report back any ports that are open, attempting to match the port with it's registered port database to determine the service that is most likely running on that port.
If the service can be determined, then it will inform you, otherwise, it will tell that it is unknown. Tests have shown that this scanner tends to run significantly faster than the scanner shipped with OS X, also, it goes one step beyond by telling you what service is most likely running on that port.
What's New in This Release:
· This version added a descriptive progress indicator, a port lookup database to determine the service running on a given port, and a tighter scanning algorythm.
· Also now allows any host to be scanned, not just the local host.
