Nmap installment

Dear Lecturer,

I have installed Nmap on my computer window 10 pro.but when I check the command prompt as Administrator but it was not recognized with my window.

Could you please let me know about that or can help that?



What is the location of the install?


Executing Nmap on Windows

Make sure the user you are logged in as has administrative privileges on the computer (user should be a member of the administrators group).

Open a command/DOS Window. Though it can be found in the program menu tree, the simplest approach is to choose “Start” -> “Run” and type cmd<enter>. Opening a Cygwin window (if you installed it) by clicking on the Cygwin icon on the desktop works too, although the necessary commands differ slightly from those shown here.

Change to the directory you installed Nmap into. You can skip this step if Nmap is already in your command path (the Zenmap isntaller adds it there by default). Otherwise, type the following commands.

cd "\Program Files (x86)\Nmap"

On Windows releases prior to Windows 7, specify \Program Files\Nmap instead. The directory will also be different if you chose to install Nmap in a non-default location.

Execute nmap.exe. Figure 2.1 is a screen shot showing a simple example.
