    Okay, Im not a hacker and please dont close this thread until you read it. I am having problems with a game on one of my home computers and I believe it is due to ports. I have forwarded the port on my router but I dont think its working correctly. I am looking for a way to scan from my problem computer to see which ports are open. I need an outbound scanner, not one that bombards an ip address with port requests. I am not sure if this matters because some of my threads have been closed before because of things that i said in my post but please dont close this one. I dont have any malice intentions.

    All outbound ports are open unless you use a firewall to close them. Simply disable the firewall and see if you still have the issue.

    To determine the ports that are in use (not the ones that are open because as stated if there is no firewall they are all "open" you want to use the netstat.

    Something like netstat -a -b might be what your looking for.
