Portastic

Programmatically find open ports with Node.js

Installation

To install Portastic you can simply use NPM:

npm install portastic

Usage

Finding all opened doors within a range:

port = require('portastic');

options = {
    min : 8000,
    mas : 8005
}

port.find(options, function(err, data){
    if(err)
        throw err;
    console.log(data);
});

If you wan't to retrieve just one or more doors you can pass it in the options:

options = {
    min : 8000,
    max : 8005,
    retrieve : 1
}

You can also test ports:

port.test(80, function(err, data){
    if(err)
        throw err;

    if(data == false)
        console.log('The port isn\'t opened.');
    else
        console.log('The port is opened!');
});

If you wan't to test an array of door, you sure can:

port.test([80, 93, 8001, 22], function(err, data){
    if(err)
        throw err;

    // 'data' will be an array with the opened doors only
    console.log('Opened doors:', data);
});

Command line

You can use Portastic in the command line too:

npm install -g portastic

This will install portastic globally, now it's up to you to call it. Display the help with:

portastic -h
