I started to read a metasploit guide book so I set up 2 Machines in VirtualBox for pen testing (host - BT 5, the second - WinXP SP2). When I
m trying to scan open ports with NMAP on the Windows machine, it appears that all ports are closed, even if I turn off the Firewall. Ive tried to open SMB port through network connection center but it also didn`t help. Why all the ports are closed and how can I open some of them (at least the most common - SMB, HTTP etc) ?
Edit: Both of the machines working on NAT (10.0.0.x) and accept ping from each other. I tried: nmap -sS -A WinIP (also tried -sN/-sT) In each scan the result was the same - all ports are closed.
Thanks in advance !
