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,

There are nmap tutorial here on Null Byte. Simply type nmap into the search window at the top.

OTW has posted a few articles here on Null Byte about nmap.

You seem new around here. So if you haven't already, please read this.


I've done my research, just wasn't what i was looking for, i post questions only as a last resort.

Then what is it you're looking for, exactly?

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