What is Nmap?

Nmap (”Network Mapper”) is a free open source utility for network exploration or security auditing. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, although it works fine against single hosts. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. Nmap runs on most types of computers and both console and graphical versions are available.

Nothing really.

I spent aconsiderable amount of time writing this, well most of the writings are from MAN files the screenshots are original, and I tried to replicate every single commands and make it to screenshots. I thought others might find it helpfull so I posted it as a HOWTO.
