Exploring Network Security with Nmap Commands: Ethical Hackers(Beginners) Must Know

3 days ago 8

I’ve already discussed the legion tool. It is a tool for scanning targets via a graphical user interface. View it now

The ping scanning gives information about every active IP on your Network. We can perform a ping scan by using the below command:

nmap -sn <target>

sS TCP SYN scan

sT TCP connect scan

sU UDP scans



Host scanning provides a detailed description of a particular host or IP address

Nmap -sp <target IP range>

Nmap -O <target IP>

This sort of scan examines the response after sending TCP and UDP packets to a port. It provides details about a host’s OS after comparing the answer to a database of operating systems.

Nmap — Top-ports 20 <target IP>

If we want the output of results of Nmap scan of any file, you can add an extension to the command.
