1) How to find all the ports open on a network
2) how to use those ports to an advantage (Possibly send a net send through them)
3) How are we able to change the port data is sent using the command prompt, if possible?
If anyone can help with this I would greatly appreciate it.
Note: This is all for the purpose of research in a class I'm in, networking+.
1) use nmap
2) that depends on what you mean. perhaps google for exploits (service). You can get a list of port to service mappings on any unix or linux at /etc/services or nmap can guess.
3) sure, read the manual pages for netcat or telnet or whatever tool you are using to craft packets.
