    The ISS scanner occasionally hangs on a machine.

    We ran the scanner over our class B by first running an nmap scan to
    check for machines that were up and listening on port 135. We then ran
    the ISS scanner over those machines. All of this was done on a linux
    machine (the ISS scanner seems to run nicely under wine).

    Hope that helps some.
