Scanning remote machines in macOS

If you have issues while testing your remote services, it’s very convenient to use Network Utility in macOS.

You can start it either using Spotlight Search (⌘-space)

or you can call it directly from CLI

> /System/Library\
MacOS/Network\ Utility

All you have to do is to scan your target machine using Prot Scan

If you want to start port listener on Linux machine, it’s good to remember you can use nc for that purpose

> nc -l 80
