This eXtension launches (the ultra-useful) Nmap port scanner and attempts to locate open ports on the scanned Web server, that speak HTTP or HTTPS. Once the port scan is done, HTTPScout will add the HTTP-speaking ports to the current scan configuration. This eXtension is useful to discover additional HTTP applications on the same server (e.g. web based administration consoles) and add them to the scan automatically.
