Nmap is a multipurpose tool, and it can be run on many different operating systems including Windows, Linux, BSD, and Mac. Nmap is a very powerful utility that can be used to:

  • Detect the live host on the network (host discovery)
  • Detect the open ports on the host (port discovery or enumeration)
  • Detect the software and the version to the respective port (service discovery)
  • Detect the operating system, hardware address, and the software version
  • Detect the vulnerability and security holes (Nmap scripts)
Preview 01:41

The purpose of this Course is to introduce a user to the Nmap command line and Zenmap tool to scan a host and/or network, so to find out the possible vulnerable points in the hosts.

The network operates by connecting computers and peripherals using two pieces of equipment; switches and routers. Switches and routers, essential networking basics, enable the devices that are connected to your network to communicate with each other, as well as with other networks.

Use the operating system that works for you. Nmap will run on a Windows system, however it generally works better and is faster under Linux so that would be my recommended platform. In addition having experience with Linux based systems is a great way to get access to a wide selection of security tools. we are going for Linux because namp is already install on kali linux.

This information is provided to assist users of Nmap in scanning their own networks, or networks for which they have been given permission to scan, in order to determine the security of such networks.

Zenmap is the GUI for the very popular free port scanner Nmap. It comes pre-loaded with 10 different scan types which we will take closer look at them in this article. 

202 - Zenmap and Nmap

Scanning a single IP & Port, a Host, range of IPs & Ports, a subnet.

203 - Port and Target Selection

Service and OS detection rely on different methods to determine the operating system or service running on a particular port. The more aggressive service detection is often helpful if there are services running on unusual ports. On the other hand the lighter version of the service will be much faster as it does not really attempt to detect the service simply grabbing the banner of the open service.
