I have a server set with a firewall.
i want to run nmap scan on all ports for that server from another server that i have.
will that trigger a " hack detection " or will it be possible to scan and audit my security settings?

I used to run a simple php script to probe my web servers and mail servers ( port 80 and 25 ) it was monitoring about 20 web servers ( including VM servers ) and i got a hack detection regarding port-scanning for the monitor host.

can someone clarify what method could i use in order to probe my server without getting a hack detection ?
