Superscan v4.0 – Fast TCP & UDP Port Scanner for Windows

Use Netsparker


This is another tool that has been around for a long time and I’ve been using it for years since it’s earliest versions, oddly however I’ve never posted about it.

So here it for the few of you that haven’t heard of it, probably the best port scanner on the Windows platform, very fast and compact and has good banner grabbing functionality.

SuperScan 4 is an update of the highly popular Windows port scanning tool, SuperScan.

Windows XP Service Pack 2 has removed raw sockets support which now limits SuperScan and many other network scanning tools. Some functionality can be restored by running the following at the Windows command prompt before starting SuperScan:

Same goes if you’re using nmap for Windows.

Features

Here are some of the new features in this version.

  • Superior scanning speed
  • Support for unlimited IP ranges
  • Improved host detection using multiple ICMP methods
  • TCP SYN scanning
  • UDP scanning (two methods)
  • IP address import supporting ranges and CIDR formats
  • Simple HTML report generation
  • Source port scanning
  • Fast hostname resolving
  • Extensive banner grabbing
  • Massive built-in port list description database
  • IP and port scan order randomization
  • A selection of useful tools (ping, traceroute, Whois etc)
  • Extensive Windows host enumeration capability

Note that SuperScan 4 is intended for Windows 2000 and XP only. Administrator privileges are required to run the program. It will not run on Windows 95/98/ME. You may need to try SuperScan v3 if this will not work with your system.
