Help with Nmap

12 posts in this topic

I installed all the components that were needed to run Nmap, but whenever I hit the .exe, it opens an msdos window, then psots information fast, and exits with no prompts for any search!

Has anyone had this problem, and could you help with the running of this Program? :grr:

That's because nmap is a command line tool.

You would use it like this, for example:

nmap -P0 -p 1080 192.*.*.* > foo.log

First off, windows sucks for this kind of stuff :)

With that said, open up a command line by going to start > run > type 'cmd' > enter.

Then switch to the directory the nmap .exe is in, and then run nmap like the above post stated.

EDIT: Fuck. I guess I type to slow.

Nmap is horrible on XP machines. I've never gotten it to work correctly.

Your best bet is to get a shell that allows you to use Nmap, and do it from there.

Well, I'm not normally a big Windows hater but Microsoft did screw over support quite a bit, so Nmap does work better on a *nix platform. See:

Yea, if you really want to do it the "windows" way and are into exploring ;

Get Cygwin

Just make sure you do a full install.
