Port scanning using Nmap and netcat (called the "TCP/IP Swiss Army knife") are great tools to begin with. Attackers will usually examine the environment for vulnerabilities when planning an attack. Port scanning allows developers to attempt to connect to specified ports or port ranges on specified remote computers.
