Scanned a local Ubuntu Linux and Windows 7 Pro system. Scan shows port 80 open/listening?
Run netstat -plnt locally and port 80 not open. False positive? Why?

It's unlikely to be a false positive. As far as I can tell if a port is reported open, the NetScan was able to make a connection.

Try telnet x.x.x.x 80 to the IP addresses in question. If it prints an error, then something appears to be wrong with NetScan. Otherwise the port is indeed open.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
