A simple Windows port scanner
<!-- Article Starts - DO NOT ADD HTML/BODY START TAGS--><!-- Download Links --> <!-- Add the rest of your HTML here -->


This project is a simple windows port scanner which can be very useful for checking your machine to make sure it is locked down! I am not responsible for misuse of this application so by building it you assume responsibility for its use!

The application creates threads which attempt to connect to the supplied ip address and using the range of port numbers supplied. In this approach the effects of connection timeouts is minimized and the application can process a range of port numbers in a relatively short amount of time.
