My rental Linux server doesn't respond to nmap the way I thought it would. When I run nmap it shows three open ports: 80, 443 and 8080. However, I know ports 2083, 22 and 2222 should all be open, as they're used for the web-based C-Panel, SSH and SFTP, respectively.

Has my server rental company not opened these ports fully, or is does nmap not give a complete list (by default)?

By default, nmap scans the thousand most common ports. Ports 2083 and 2222 aren't on that list. In order to perform a complete scan, you need to specify "all ports" (nmap -p 1-65535, or the shortcut form nmap -p-).

Port 22, on the other hand, is on the list. If nmap isn't reporting it, it's because something's blocking your access, or the SSH server isn't running.

  • when I run this locally I get Strange read error from 127.0.0.1 (22 - 'Invalid argument') – aeb0 Oct 25 '16 at 4:40
  • Your examples exclude port 0. The standard socket API doesn't permit binding to port 0. But it is a possible value of the port number in the wire format and you can tell nmap to include it for example: nmap -v -p0- 198.51.100.42 – kasperd Feb 3 at 15:09
  • @aeb0 I recall having seen errors similar to that when traffic was blocked by iptables. – kasperd Feb 3 at 15:10

These are the 1000 ports that nmap randomly checks if not said otherwise. You can see that 2222 is on the list, but 2083 isn't.
