I have it from:
Maintainer: LaMont Jones <email@example.com>
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.2), libglib1.2 (>= 1.2.0), libgtk1.2 (>= \
1.2.6-1), xlib6g (>= 3.3.5)
Does quite a lot of neat scanning tricks - half-scan ("stealth") and various
others, across whole subnets instead of just machines.
I vote for 'netstat -anp' if you're on the machine itself though and need to
see what process is responsible for the port. Nmap for what other folks can
see of you.
