└──╼ $nmap -sC -sV -p$ports 10.10.10.27
Starting Nmap 7.80 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2020-04-27 01:56 BST
Error #487: Your port specifications are illegal. Example of proper form: "-100,200-1024,T:3000-4000,U:60000-"
QUITTING!

why doesn't the command given at the starting point work?

  • What are you trying to accomplish? The $ports option doesn't belong in there (I'm not even sure it exists). If you're trying to scan specific ports it would look something like "nmap -sC -sV -p 10.10.10.27".

  • Oops, it removed the part after -p. "nmap -sC -sV -p (port to scan) 10.10.10.27"

    There could be a couple of reasons for this but it would be worth looking at what else you've used.

    At a very high level, it is saying that whatever has gone into $ports isn't being recognised as a sequence of ports. It could be that you are missing commas between the port numbers.

    Happy to help people but PLEASE explain your problem in as much detail as possible! If you say vague things like "It's not working", I cant help. This isn't Twitter so my DMs are always open.
