Scan Template -> Service Discovery -> Ports to Scan has drop down option of "Well-Known Port Numbers". What is the exhaustive list that this includes?
Here are the well known port lists:
If you want to remove specific ports from the well known list(s) currently I would recommend changing the drop-down to a custom list and then pasting these in and removing the ones you would like excluded.
Very Helpful BJohnson.
Being that it has been several years since this post, I am wondering if this information is still current. Is there a way to query this information out of the reporting DB? Or any other way to see this listing within the Nexpose console?
I do not believe this has changed. Anyone from Rapid7 want to correct me?
Thanks for the feedback smaske. Confirmation would be great, but whether this has changed or not, it would still be good to be able to identify this information either through the reporting DB or somewhere else from within the app. That way I could check in on this information at some point far in the future and still know 100% what ports are included.
The scan log shows the ports being used for nmap, which should show you which ports are included in the well-known ports option.
