when I run:

nmap --open -sT -p 5900,3389 -oG test 10.0.1.121

This outputs to console:

Starting Nmap 5.00 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-02-15 16:31 PST
Interesting ports on 10.0.1.121:
Not shown: 1 filtered port
PORT     STATE SERVICE
3389/tcp open  ms-term-serv
MAC Address: 00:0C:29:E1:16:55 (VMware)

And this outputs to test:

# Nmap 5.00 scan initiated Fri Feb 15 16:31:56 2013 as: nmap --open -sT -p 5900,3389 -oG test 10.0.1.121 
Host: 10.0.1.121 () Ports: 3389/open/tcp//ms-term-serv///   Ignored State: filtered (1)
# Nmap done at Fri Feb 15 16:31:57 2013 -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 1.52 seconds

I want to run awk on the output to the console not from the file. It seems like for everyone else it outputs to to console. I don't know why this isn't working for me.

Running nmap 5.000

As a special case, a file name of - can be used to send the Grepable output to the console instead of the normal output.
