    I'm a networking person that is in the early stages of learning linux.
    I downloaded and installed nmap onto a Redhat 9.0 box that I have.
    The files I used are:

    nmap-3.48-1.i386.rpm
    nmap-frontend-3.48-1.i386.rpm

    My question is: What does the nmap-frontend-3.48-1.i386.rpm represent?
    Is there a gui front end? Is there a client front end that can
    connect from another machine? I'm thinking in networking terms. Is
    there a different kind of front end in the Unix/Linux world? Is this
    term just partial to this program?

    TIA,
    Paul

  2. Try running rpm -q -l nmap-frontend-3.48-1 - this will list the whole
    content of the package :) For more info, consult man rpm
