Is there any way to get an external ports and services discovery map? We would like to run a monthly discovery to determine what ports are exposed. Does not appear to be an obvious way to do this basic need.
If you create a search list with QID's 82023 and 82004 only, you can use that in a scanning profile to just look for all open TCP ports and UDP ports. It will also try to confirm the actual service running on each port, and whether there is a redirection in place.
Thank you, however I was hoping to not have to do a full time consuming vuln scan. I would prefer just a simple host query to see what ports are open
This is not a full time consuming vuln scan. This tests only for those two QIDs, so it will be quick.
It's as simple as it's going to get. If that's still too much for you, then I suggest you use nmap.
