MAN Solaris - NMAPFE (1)



nmapfe (xnmap) - GTK+ graphical frontend to the Nmap Security Scanner




nmapfe [ any Glib options such as --display ]




Nmapfe (also known as xnmap) is a convenient X Window front end for the Nmap Security Scanner. Most of the options correspond directly to Nmap options, which are described in detail in the Nmap man page. We recommend you read that first. There is also limited help available via the NmapFE "Help" menu.
