nmap is the number one most powerful network scanner available. With hundreds of command line options it can be overwelming to try to find the correct parameters for each and every situation.

nmap operates in a number of phases. In this lecture I will briefly explain them. Each phase will be further explained in later lectures.


nmap by default scans a number of ports. But you can tell nmap exactly what to scan. I explain it all here.

Specifying ports to scan

During a scan, nmap gives almost no output. Sometimes you can believe that nmap is dead. But it isn´t. I explain it here!

Output during scan

After this lecture you will understand how the output looks like when the nmap scan is finished, and a few ways to adjust this output.
