Download v1.2 (for Windows 2000 / XP Pre SP2)


IPEye is a TCP port scanner that can do SYN, FIN, Null and Xmas scans.

Usage instructions

Download the exe file and run it from the Command Prompt. It will give you the instructions you need.


Q: How do I redirect or stop the output?

A: You can redirect the output to a file by appending for example "> file.txt" at the end of what you write at the Command Prompt. You can stop the output by appending "| more".

Q: Do all the scan types work against all systems?

A: No, the FIN, Null and Xmas scans don't work against Windows systems.

Q: What does "closed, rejected, drop and open" mean?

A: "Closed" means that there is a computer on the other end, but it doesn't listen at the port. "Reject" means that there is a firewall rejecting (sending a reset back) the connection to the port. "Drop" means that there is a firewall dropping everything to the port, or there is no computer at all on the other end. "Open" means that there is some kind of service listening at the port.

Q: Will you do a version for other Windows than 2000 / XP?

A: No, so don't ask for it please.

Q: Can IPEye be used to do spoofed scans, if so, isn't that a nasty feature?

A: Yes it can. There really is no reason not to include that feature. You can already do it with for example nmap (which doesn't run on Windows though). Also, this feature is useful for security testing in some cases.

Q: Will I be able to see the results of a spoofed scan?

A: If you are located on a network where returning packets will pass through, yes. If not, no.

Q: When I double-click on the file a window comes up and disappears immediately. What's wrong?

A: You must run the file from a Command Prompt.

Q: Why does IPEye say that I'm not running Windows 2000 or above even though I do?

A: Make sure that you don't have SocketLock installed as it will prevent IPEye from working.

Q: I have a question that is not covered here. Where can I get help?

A: Send me your question. I can't promise that I will have time to answer, but I'll do my best.
