Port Test Condition
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

This condition checks to see if a given port number on the target system is currently bound and in use.  It does not make any checks to see what is running on that port, only that the port is bound and answering or not.

Technical Detail

The action will attempt to open a socket to (the local host) on the given port and see if anything answers the connection attempt.  It then closes the port without ever sending or receiving any data.
