Are you saying you can login with WMI but don't have credentials to do a
full Nessus audit?
Passively, if you have the ability to deploy something like Tenable's
Passive Vulnerability Scanner, it will detect any web server, unique web
site, SSL certificates, .etc on any port as long as there is traffic to it.

But a port could be blocked through the firewall and an instance still listening locally although not remotely accessible providing the FW is running. These do exist for tools run locally and I've seen the FW fail too so want to ensure coverage for these also.
