Davtri Fingerprinting Port Scanner (Davtri fScanner for short) is a fast, cocoa, multi-threaded, finger-printing port scanner. The application will search the entered host for open ports that are in the provided range or list, it will then report the ports which are open as well as which services tend to be registed on those ports.

The application also allows you to save the report to a text file for later review, analysis or reporting.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.3 or later

Great application. Have you thought about doing a version in pure Objective-C thought? I think that might speed it up a little bit and would be about the only thing that could be improved, although it's already faster than most scanners that run on OS X and beats the crap out of the one Apple bundled with the system.

Yeah, I have thought about it. Actually, I have one about half built that I created when testing out one of the Objective-C networking packages. It doesn't handle finger printing right now and can only scan 1 IP at a time though, so it's not ready for release in any way, shape or form.

I haven't had time to mess with it lately due to so many other projects with work and a few promises that I had made for other softwares, like the dstats.cgi I just released today. I will hopefully get around to it in the near future, but am not absolutely sure about that.

I usually have a few hours offline on Tuesday nights when waiting for my wife to finish her night class at school, so hopefully one of those evenings will provide me with the time to work on rolling out a distributable version of the Objective-C scanner.

The above comment may have been posted by David Giffin, the developer of this program. The IP address of the developer and the review above match exactly. The developer may claim that it was a coworker in the same building that posted the review, but typically this reason is very improbable.

I would say that you had a problem with something else on your system. This application has nothing what-so-ever to do with iChat or it's framework. Now, if you're running a scanner of any kind, you are going to have problems running streaming audio while the scanner is running. It's that simple.

But this App is standalone and doesn't interface with iChat in any way, so chances are you were either trying to stream audio while scanning, or you had another problem on your system and it was just coincidence, as many users of this also use iChat with no problem.

Installing this completely ruined my ability to audio chat with iChat, and I had to get rid of it, so I am not impressed.

Very very nice -- blazingly fast with truly useful port fingerprint. A 'cancel' state would be nice once a scan is initiated -- but near perfect as it is. More detailed info on fingerprints might be nice.

Truly nice work from a prolific coder.

Many thanks...

I am thinking about the best way to put a cancel button into the app, but with it being multi-threaded, that has some potential issues to keep data from corrupting. It's not impossible, but will take a little bit of forethought.

I will probably roll some additional finger printing utilities out at a later point which will provide more information on given services. I wanted to keep this fast and light-weight because detailed finger-printing can be a fairly heavy task, especially if you're doing in on something as broad ranged as a wide port scan.

Nice, but if your a power user.. nmap's the way to go. If you like a GUI you can use NMAPFE (front-end) for Apple's X11. You can install by source (manual) or w/ fink.

I agree, but sometimes NMap is just overkill for a quick portscan and service fingerprinting. I have thought about wrapping nmap in cocoa and may get around to it some day, but some folks just aren't up to nmap or just prefer a gui tool.

Take care,
