I have it from:

	Package: nmap
	Version: 2.3BETA14-0
	Priority: extra
	Section: net
	Maintainer: LaMont Jones <lamont@debian.org>
	Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.2), libglib1.2 (>= 1.2.0), libgtk1.2 (>=   \
		 1.2.6-1), xlib6g (>= 3.3.5)
	Architecture: i386
	Filename: dists/unstable/main/binary-i386/net/nmap_2.3BETA14-0.deb

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.
