Enables you to see which IPs are 'live' within a given network range. Behind a 'live' IP there is a running server or workstation.
By seeing which hosts are live in a network range, you can map the perimeter of an organization and plan the pentesting work.
This tool helps you estimate the security assessment effort for an organization by showing how many servers and workstations are reachable from the Internet.
You can use this tool to perform an asset inventory against your own network ranges. Detect old systems which should be updated or decomissioned.
|IP range||The range of IP addresses that will be sweeped. Maximum 256 IP addresses can be sweeped in a row. The range can be specified in CIDR notation (188.8.131.52/24) or IP range (184.108.40.206-254).|
|Do reverse DNS||When this option is enabled, the tool will try to find the DNS name associated with each live IP address. Names are useful because they usually suggest the functionality of the system.|
