Open ports and modern tools for checking them

16.04.21 в 09:06 Interesting 315

Our company, which offers proxy and VPN servers, is not limited to a purely commercial direction. Among the advantages of our company: 24/7 technical support, no logs, the flexibility of use, regular pool updates (every three hours), Torrent support, P2P, and VoIP. You can check out the advantages in the corresponding section of our website. Among other things, we periodically make a small "excursion" into the field of modern information technologies. In this text, we will talk about programs that make it possible to scan open ports: explain what it is describe the verification procedure, and note some details.

Some basic facts

«Open ports» refer to the TCP or UPD port number required for packet encapsulating. Web pages and FTP services assume that certain ports are "open" and available. К числу последних относятся, например, 37 Time Protocol, 21 FTP – Control, 443 HTTPS и многие другие. In our article, we will talk about scanners that are used to check a public IP address; they also make it possible to determine the "openness" of ports in a web connection. With the help of such tools, specialists check the addressing settings (if the settings are incorrect, the firewall will block the operation). Individual ports, such as port 25, are blocked at the ISP level (in an attempt to intercept a suspicious process). The data always includes a number that allows you to specify the location using the protocols and redirect them.

Algorithm

The scanning procedure is not illegal, but you will probably have some difficulties if your object is the target host and you are not authorized. TCP port scanners allow administrative users to check which ports send information to the network and protect against hacking.

The procedure itself is relatively simple. It is enough to follow a simple algorithm to scan open ports:

  1. Hold down the Windows button and the R button at the same time.
  2. Write CMD and press Enter.
  3. In the command line, write "netstat-a", and then enter.

After a short amount of time, you will see a list of ports that provide a connection.

Security and tools

Suspicious software behaves just like a service waiting for a connection from a hacker who intends to steal confidential or corporate information or gain control of a computer. Due to this, to increase the level of security, unused ports on the PC are often closed: this ensures that you can block access to a service that continues to function without client information (and it does not matter whether the service was set up incorrectly or whether there is suspicious software).

Among the best-proven tools for checking open ports are the following:

  • TCP Port Scan with Nmap.
  • UltraTools;
  • DNS Tools;
  • Web Proxy and Privacy Tool;
  • IPVOID;
  • Yougetsignal;
  • Solar winds Port Scanner;
  • IP Tool.

伴随着会联网的广泛使用,随之带来一系列的危险。首先涉及到匿名和安全性。如果信息不设防范手段,您的数据很可能被入侵 — 这里举个例子,关于在公用网络中的私人的信件。

最初的互联网预想让空间没有国界化,无论在在那里都可以绝对匿名地获取任何信息。现在很多国家都出现了禁止访问某些资源的情况 。

当今世界保证私人和企业的秘密数据变得越来越困难,所以信息安全的问题变得的越演越烈。每个人都拥有生存、自由和人身安全的权力。保护自己的数据免受入侵,和第三方的调查是没有任何原因的。如果您想在网络上安全地保存自己的信息,就不得不去遵守那些规则。本文就来介绍下基本的方法、手段和常用的程序,当然最主要的是互联网的安全使用。

In the recent past by the standards of the development of information technologies, in 2015 Google created artificial intelligence based on neural networks, which was able to analyze the condition around itself and draw conclusions about its further education. The name of the new offspring from Google was given in abbreviated from the term "deep Q-network" - DQN. The DQN started training in common arcade games (Pakman, Tennis, Space Invaiders, Boksing and other classics).

Good afternoon! Now we are talking about such an important topic in our time, as an opportunity to bypass the blocking of sites. The problem is very relevant in our country

Proxy server: what is it? Main advantages of working via a virtual “mediator” – anonymity on the web, avoiding all bans, protection against attacks, intellectual property protection

Detailed and as simplified as possible instructions on how to choose and configure proxies on 1C for those who have never done anything like this before.

We will talk about the procedure for checking open ports, briefly describe the scanning procedure itself, and finally, list the main tools and scanners that are suitable for these tasks.

Many Internet users are complaining about annoying CAPTCHAs. You get kicked from a web-source for a second and suddenly, artificial intelligence asks you to type a set of symbols with numbers, or Russian & Latin letters, or click all the traffic lights and crosswalks in the pictures.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain anonymity and privacy on the Internet: search engines, websites, and social networks collect information about users and use it for commercial purposes. Any visitor to the web leaves a digital trail, followed by numerous advertisers and target markets.
