The Port scanner tool remotely discovers the status of TCP ports on devices. You can specify a range of IP addresses to include in the scan, and then scan a Quick List of port numbers or manually select the ports from a list that includes their common purposes.

The deprecated version of Port Scanner still exists in the Toolset Installation folder, the default location is \Program Files\SolarWinds\Toolset. The name has been changed to Deprecated_PortScanner.exe.

For more information about the currently supported version of this tool, see Port Scanner.

  1. Enter the beginning and ending IP addresses of the computers whose ports you want to scan.
  2. If you want to use a Quick List for your scan, select Use Quick List instead of Settings, and then enter a list of ports or select a predefined Quick List in the Port Range field.

    Enter port lists separated by commas for individual ports, and separated by hyphens to cover a range of values.

  3. If you want to select ports from a list which includes common port definitions, complete the following procedure:
    1. Click Settings.
    2. Select the ports you want to scan in the Available Ports list.
    3. If you want to redefine or add a new port, enter the port and a description in the Add New Port grouping, and then click Add New.
    4. If you want to delete a port, select the port, and then click Delete.
    5. If you want to change the sort or filter the window to show only those ports already selected, select the field.
    6. Click OK.
  4. Click Scan.
