The 7 commands

NMap Command 1

Whenever I do an NMap scan on target first I do is the host discovery, Yes search for the open ports between 0-65535 or At least I will do between 0 to 1000 ports

nmap -p- <Target> 


nmap -p- scanme.nmap.org 

-p- full port scan


NMap command 2

Once I found the open ports then next thing I am doing is to find the OS and the version

nmap -A <Target>


nmap -A scanme.nmap.org

-A is for service version, OS info and also script info

NMap Command 3

This is going to be a full scan I use in my everyday life

nmap -p- -Pn -sS -A -T4 -iL livehosts.txt -oA fullscan

-p- : Full port scan

-Pn : Do not perform host discovery again

-sS : TCP SYN scan

-A : This combines OS detection, service version detection, script scanning and traceroute

-T4 : fast scanning

-iL livehosts.txt : Scan the IPs contained in file “livehosts.txt”

-oA : Export the results in file “fullscan”

NMap command 4

Running the HTTP server against the Nikto vulnerability scanner

nmap -p80 -oG – | nikto.pl -h –

-p80 -HTTP server

-oG saved file

nikto – vulnerability scanning in HTTP

NMap command 5

Finding the location of the target

nmap --script=ip-geolocation-ipinfodb --script-args=ip-geolocation-ipinfodb.apikey=[APIKEY]
