nmap somesite.com on my local machine and I get the following results:
Host is up (0.026s latency). Not shown: 942 closed ports, 50 filtered ports PORT STATE SERVICE 21/tcp open ftp 22/tcp open ssh 80/tcp open http 443/tcp open https 5060/tcp open sip 5500/tcp open hotline 8008/tcp open http 8010/tcp open xmpp
I then ssh into my aws instance and run the same command, but I consistently get:
Host is up (0.098s latency). Not shown: 996 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 22/tcp open ssh 80/tcp open http 5000/tcp open upnp 5500/tcp open hotline
Both my local machine and server are running Ubuntu 16.04. I'm wondering why I would get such different results?
