Nmap 6.49BETA5 released
Nmap and Zenmap (the graphical front end) are available in several versions and formats. Recent source releases and binary packages are described below. Older version (and sometimes newer test releases) are available from the dist directory (and really old ones are in dist-old). For the more security-paranoid (smart) users, GPG detached signatures and SHA-1 hashes for each release are available in the sigs directory (verification instructions). Before downloading, be sure to read the relevant sections for your platform from the Nmap Install Guide. The most important changes (features, bugfixes, etc) in each Nmap version are described in the Changelog. Using Nmap is covered in the Reference Guide, and don’t forget to read the other available documentation, particularly the new book Nmap Network Scanning!
Source Code Distribution (in case you wish to compile Nmap yourself)
This is the traditional compile-it-yourself format. The Nmap tarball compiles under Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and many UNIX platforms (Solaris, Free/Net/OpenBSD, etc.) It includes Zenmap, the GUI frontend. Nmap is now offered in bzip2 format as well as traditional gzip.
Detailed Linux/BSD/Solaris compilation instructions and options are provided here, though this usually does the trick:
bzip2 -cd nmap-6.49BETA5.tar.bz2 | tar xvf - cd nmap-6.49BETA5 ./configure make su root make install
If you are compiling Nmap anyway, you might prefer to get the very latest code from our SVN source code repository rather than downloading a tarball here.
Linux RPM Source and Binaries
Many popular Linux distributions (Redhat, Mandrake, Suse, etc) use the RPM package management system for quick and easy binary package installation. These may not work with Redhat 9 or earlier due to Libc incompatability issues. We have written a detailed guide to installing our RPM packages, though these simple commands usually do the trick:
rpm -vhU https://nmap.org/dist/nmap-6.49BETA5-1.i386.rpm rpm -vhU https://nmap.org/dist/zenmap-6.49BETA5-1.noarch.rpm rpm -vhU https://nmap.org/dist/ncat-6.49BETA5-1.i386.rpm rpm -vhU https://nmap.org/dist/nping-0.6.49BETA5-1.i386.rpm
