Has anybody proposed or is there a way to measure the progress of a
TCP/UDP scan that nmap is doing (from the same host where it's being
executed from?). With TCP "connect" attempts I can see approximately
what is going on with netstat. But with UDP and TCP-SYN scanning,
since they are not stateful they don't show up when using netstat.
My reasoning for this question is that different hosts respond
differently to UDP scans due to protocol stack implementation and if a
particular host is REALLY slow at responding to UDP or TCP/SYN
scanning I dont want to wait 3 days for it to finish..
thanks for any responses and please excuse my ignorance if there is an

Also, using dst instead of src works better, especially if you are
doing other things like SSH or web surfing during the scan.
thanks for the help!
