NMAP Quick Guide Ubuntu

This post is to serve as a quick page to go to remember how to quickly scan a network for hardware and stuff connected to it because you, like me, probably forget all the timeā€¦

  1. Figure out your LAN IP address that you want to scan (probably you didn’t forget this like me!). Let’s pretend it’s for this post, but change it to whatever it is for you
  2. Quick scan just for IP addresses: sudo nmap -sn
  3. Deeper scan (the one I always use) to see manufacturer, and all that good stuff: sudo nmap
  4. Target one IP for more juice: sudo nmap -A -T4

Special thanks to this blog that I always end up at but never have enough time to read.
