Netstat Portscanner (SSH)

info Nessus Plugin ID 14272


Remote open ports can be enumerated via SSH.


Nessus was able to run 'netstat' on the remote host to enumerate the open ports. If 'netstat' is not available, the plugin will attempt to use 'ss'.

See the section 'plugins options' about configuring this plugin.

Note: If the scan policy has WMI Netstat enabled, this plugin will run on Windows (using netstat.exe) in the event that the target being scanned is localhost.
