I have used the MAP TOOL 5.5. in our customer place and tried to scan the inventory using the IP address range for 11 servers. But it failed. When I have enable the necessary windows firewall ports as per the guidance given in map tool document. But still it gets fail. It get success when I disabled the windows firewall only. when I monitor the network traffic, i noticed that this MAP tool is not using the exact port it mentioned. (135,137,138.445..) the port numbers are varying from 10 - 60000.. so what is the reason for this. I cant ask our customer to open all these ports and he is not in a position to disable the windows fire wall as well.
can any one help me on this??
