nmap

  1. I just thought I'd ask if anyone uses nmap much? I haven't. This look
    though like a pretty versatile tool. Just thought I'd ask for feedback from
    anyone pretty familiar with it.

    It is a versatile tool. However, you should understand
    what you're intending to do. It is so strong that it is
    regarded as a set of binary burglary tools in many
    organizations.

    What are you attempting to achieve?

  3. One perhaps tangential recommendation: when mapping a host not part of
    your network, run nmap on a server "out there", and not on your home
    desktop. If you do the latter your results will suffer all kinds of
    distortions due to the tricks that home routers do (NAT, proxying, etc.)

  4. I would like to proxy. But also just port scanning. Not so much for
    nefarious reasons but if I see port 21 is open. I might be able to ftp an IP
    and not just use a web broser through 80 or so.
