Nmap 4.03 Released

From Fyodor:

I am also pleased to report that Nmap 4.03 is now available. It is
mostly a bug and portability fix release, though it does have a few
new features as well. With this "stable version" out of the way, I
plan to resume breaking stuff to implement a 2nd generation OS
detection system.

As always, Nmap is available from
http://www.insecure.org/nmap/download.html

Re: Nmap 4.03 Released

Don't remember where the post was, but someone had a problem after installing Nmap on their system. When they clicked on the desktop icon for Nmap, a command prompt window appear briefly, then disappeared. You can fix this by right clicking the shortcut (make sure it is the shortcut on the desktop and not the nmap.exe from the nmap folder), selecting properties and placing the following in the Target field:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe "C:\Program Files\Nmap\nmap.exe"

Since the program it launches is cmd.exe first, the icon will change to a cmd icon. So if you want to be fancy, click on the "Change Icon..." button and select C:\Program Files\Nmap\nmap.exe.

Presto... you're up and running.

Hope this helps,

Re: Nmap 4.03 Released

Thanks, Don. I was the one having the problem with Nmap. I tried your fix, and it is a lot more stable, now. But it still leaves me with a command windows instead of the familiar GUI front end. How do I get the GUI back?

Re: Nmap 4.03 Released

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Windows GUI for Nmap was nmapwin, and that hasn't been updated or supported for quite some time.

So it's now strictly a command line utility, and I think Fyodor likes it that way.

What were you using and when did you install it?

Re: Nmap 4.03 Released

Well, I was first intoduced to Nmap when I was in CEH class, so that the version I was running (I'll have to look up the version number) was the one that came on the CEH lab disk. An old version now, to be sure. I can do NMap off the comnad line, guess I'm just lazy for the GUI, I guess. Some of us were raised on Windows. Guilty as charged, But I migrated from the Windows of the Amiga Workbench to Windows 3.1, and the rest is history. Sue me, you won't get anything.  ;D
