Nmap (\"Network Mapper\") is a free and open source (license) utility for
network discovery and security auditing. Many systems and network
administrators also find it useful for tasks such as network inventory,
managing service upgrade schedules, and monitoring host or service uptime.
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. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, but works
fine against single hosts. Nmap runs on all major computer operating
systems, and official binary packages are available for Linux, Windows, and
Mac OS X. In addition to the classic command-line Nmap executable, the Nmap
suite includes an advanced GUI and results viewer (Zenmap), a flexible data
transfer, redirection, and debugging tool (Ncat), a utility for comparing
scan results (Ndiff), and a packet generation and response analysis tool
