Forum Thread: How to Use Nmap ?

I was practicing metasploit when i was asked for the IP address of the RHOST, I've never used nmap before, and i think its time to get some basics on it, especially how to get IP addresses on my network,

Also, as OTW said, there are SO many good tutorials here...
Assuming your network is default, I would do this:
nmap -sP 192.168.2.1/24 (add sudo if needed)

i don't really think you need that with nmap... anyway, there's a version for linux so yes
