Nmap usage method
- Scan IP which common TCP port and UDP port are open
nmap 127.0.0.1 or nmap -sS -sU -p 1-65535 127.0.0.1
- Scan multiple IP addresses or subnet
nmap 127.0.0.1 172.16.6.1 nmap 172.16.6.1-100 nmap 172.16.6.0/24
In the scan result, if the state column is open, it means the state is open; if it is filtered, it may be filtered by a firewall; if it is closed, it means the port is closed.
- Scans which hosts are alive in the subnet
nmap -n -sP 172.16.6.0/24
- Nmap route trace
namp –traceroute 184.108.40.206
- Scans IP or subnet hosts for port
nmap -p 12598 127.0.0.1 nmap -p 12598 172.16.6.0/24
- An option that goes one step further and gives you more information about the services running on a specific host is ‘-A’.
nmap -A 127.0.0.1
- Nmap scans the operating system type using the -O option
nmap -O 12598 127.0.0.1
