Networking/Computing Tips/Tricks

In our previous articles on nmap ( Getting Started with nmap and Deeper Scanning with nmap and Even Deeper Scanning with nmap and Advanced nmap Scripting Engine) we ran everything from the command line interface of various Linux distributions.  When you install nmap, you also get something called 'Zenmap' which is the graphical user interface front end for nmap.

Some people prefer this front end.  So let's fire it up in Parrot and see what it looks like.  The first thing I did was switch to the root user:

su root

Then entered the password.

Now with root priviledges, I entered zenmap at the terminal prompt and the GUI started:

zenmap1

Note a couple of things:  By default in the command box there is the following command: nmap -T4 -A -v but the Target box is empty.  Also note that there is a Profile field.  Profiles allow you to create custom repeatable scans, but the good folks at nmap have preloaded some profiles for us.

So I loaded the Quick Scan profile, and ran it against my home network:

zenmap2

Notice a list of found hosts appears on the left, and by selecting each host I can view the results of the scan for that selected host on the Nmap output tab.

The tabs include Ports/Hosts, and Topology, Host Details and prior executed scans, which you can save.

Pretty nice.
