    Hello all.
    I need to know if exists a command to see the port status (open, close
    etc..http, ftp, etc)

    For which platform?

    There is no command for this on PIX, and I do not know of any command
    for this on IOS.

    When you are using access lists (on PIX or IOS), whether a port is
    accessible or not depends upon the IP address that you are trying
    to connect from, so there is no simple way to check whether
    access will be permitted to a particular port.

    Somehow, though, I get the impression that your question is not about
    Cisco devices: I suspect your question is really about Windows.
    The command to use in Windows (or Unix) is netstat

  4. Are you sure about that? Port 25 is SMTP, and 110 is POP3; are you
    perchance running NAT redirecting those to internal servers?

    Something like 'ip inside source static tcp <internal address> 25
    <outside address> 25' would do it for SMTP.

  5. You're probably running Norton AntiVirus on the machine that you ran
    the scan from. NAV sets itself up to act as a proxy for incoming and
    outgoing email, which tricks portscanners into declaring ports 25 and
    110 open whenever a host is scanned.
