Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 137015
gnome-nettool port scan does not work on computers outside lan
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
Description of problem:
I have been testing fc3t3 and have come across what appears to be
another bug, but I would like some to confirm it. I have tried all the
tools in the gnome-nettool, Main Menu > System Tools > Network Tools,
and think thier is a problem with the port scanning tool.
It is only able to scan the ports of computers in my network. Any
thing out of the 192.168.1.* just keep attempting to scan without any
results. I have tried it on srevers I knew had open ports, but nothing
is ever returned.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Gnome gnome-nettool 0.99.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome-nettool
2. Do a port scan on any address not in you lan
3. Don't get any results
Numerous ports returned.
I have tested this on servers I know have open ports. It worked when I
used nmap on fc2, so it shouldn't be an ISP problem.
Please CC yourself on the upstream bug - the maintainers will probably
have more questions to ask before they can resolve the issue.
