With Port Scanner you can easily check for open ports on your system or at any address. Frequently used ports can be saved in profiles and used later on different hosts. All ports are displayed in a table and can be filtered and ordered. The user has two options, he can scan all ports at once or each port separately. User can also edit host on selected port or remove port from scanning. Two types of adding ports are introduced. User can add individual port or selected port range. If port number is already in the table no port is added.
