Nmap for Windows Review

Fernando Ortega
Free network exploration and auditing
A review of Nmap for Windows by Fernando Ortega

Nmap for Windows, Nmap coming from "Network Mapper", is a freeware and fully open source networking application which is useful for network auditing and displaying network inventory. It displays what services are running on a networked system, the operating system it is running, what type of firewalls are in place and many other different details about each computer on the network, whether they be Windows or Unix-type systems.

Nmap is a very flexible application, perfect for network administrators on both Windows (via cmd.exe or GUI) or Linux (via shell or GUI). Nmap can map out tons networks and perform port scanning, OS detection, version detection and ping sweeps, among others.

Network Mapper has also been tested on very large networks with more than 100,000 machines; it is very scalable and provides more details about networked systems than comparable commercial applications.

The overall goal and end result of administrators using Nmap is more secure networks, less hacking and less compromised systems. Nmap also has a very large community and tutorials and support are provided via mailing lists and online forums. Nmap remains one of the most popular programs on several open source distribution sites and is actually included in several Linux distros such as Redhat Enterprise Linux, Gentoo and Debian.

Nmap for Windows features and highlights:
  • Host discovery: Identifying hosts on a network
  • Port scanning: Enumerating the open ports on target hosts
  • Version detection: Interrogating network services on remote devices to determine application name and version
  • OS detection: Determining the operating system and hardware characteristics of network devices
  • Scriptable interaction with the target
