Scanning Network Advanced IP Scanner | Angry IP Scanner
What is scanning
Network scanning refers to the user of a computer network together information regrading computing system Network Scanning is mainly used for security system maintenance, and ports and services scanning also performing by hackers and Network Pentesters.
Network scanning tool
- Nmap Scanner
- Zenmap Scanner
- Angry IP Scanner
- Advanced IP Scanner
- Metasploit – msfconsole
Nmap Network Scanning
Nmap is a free open source tool for network scanning or security auditing nmap is a network scanner that is widely used by ethical hackers to scanning networks. nmap is run Linux, Windows, Mac, and other operating system.
Let’s try with an example
- -sC for default Script
- -sV Service and Version
- -O Operating system detection
nmap -sC -sV -o 172.20.10.13
After the complete scanning the network we can see our target useful information like which operating system is running on target PC and ports and services
Zenmap Network Scanning
Zenmap is GUI ( graphical user interface ) of nmap zenmap just gives you a fancy GUI overlay where it literally passed the command directly it is a lot easier to use and zenmap is also available for windows and mac operating system
Zenmap Installation Kali Linux
First we install zenmap on kali linux you can download here zemap link After download the zenmap rpm file we can convert the file rpm to dpkg then run dpkg installation command,
alien zenmap-7.80-1.noarch.rpm dpkg -i zenmap-7.80-1.noarch.rpm
We can also start the zenmap command line and manually now our zenmap is started to put your target IP on and select scan type then click the scan button. after a minute we see target open ports and services.
Intense scan flag
- -T4 Set timing limit (higher is faster) 5
- -A Aggressive Scan ( mode enables OS detection ( -O ), version detection ( -sV ), sC script
- -v verbosity
Angry IP Network Scanner
Angry IP scanner is a very fast IP address and ports and services scanner. it is an open-source tool-free uses it is a fast and friendly network scanner Angry IP Scanner is developed in the Java Programming language.
it is also available Linux, Arch, windows, Mac and another operating system you can download here angry IP scanner download
Angry IP scanner Installation
dpkg -i ipscan_3.7.0_amd64.deb ipscan
config ports selection specify ports scan range I scan standard ports 1-1024
Scanning only one hosts IP and ports
We can scan full network with angry IP scanner use the IP range
Msfconsole Network Scanning
Msfconsole is the framework by Metasploit it provides many useful another scanner and exploits but today we use msfconsole for ports scanning
It’s just another excellent tool to have in your arsenal if you happen to be running Metasploit on a system without Nmap installed we scan our ports and service through Metasploit using the auxiliary TCP port scanner
msfdb run use auxiliary/scanner/portsan/tcp set ports 1-1024 set rhosts 172.20.10.1 set threads 100 run
We can see that msfconsole built-in scanner modules ( use auxiliary/scanner/portscan/TCP are more than capable of finding systems and open ports for us.
msfdb run use auxiliary/scanner/portsan/tcp set rhosts 172.20.10.1/24 set threads 100 run
