Banner Grabbing: what ports?

Hi all,

I have noticed that banner grabbing is a fundamental feature for proper asset reconciliation, for example, port UDP 137 (aka NETBIOS Name Service) allows you to grab the MAC of assets of other subnets. Other useful info are the NETBIOS and Domain names.

My question is: What other port banners are parsed by MVM?

Thanks in advance,

Well we process all banners that are collected at some point during a scan. Some are used for the discovery process to determine the OS.
