Where to test portscanner?

Hi I'm looking for a legal, safe website to test my portscanner on. Does anybody know a website that will let me run a portscan and can you point me in the direction of a couple simple linux/windows portscanners?

Thanks!

You could try this one. Mission 16 invites us to pen test it so i don't think anyone would frown at a port scan.
For linux I'd reccomend nmap. don't know if it's availible on windows

As far as I am aware, port scanning is legal, so you can test it wherever you like. However, port scanning in high numbers may turn the head of your ISP, and it's possible they could refuse you service because of that. The reason for this, is because depending on the severity of the scan, some sites may ban the IP you scanned from, and your ISP does not the IP's they give out to customers to be banned from certain services.
