So far, I understand that you have a program with multithreading, but it
only threads the host checking (because it actually scans one port

What I do *not* understand if this is a question about:

- port checking (asume not, because the program already checks a port,
so you can actually see how it's done)

- threading (asume not, because the program already is multithreading,
so you can actually see how it's done)

- modifying your program (asume not, you did not copy it here).

So, for us be able to help you, what can not you do?
