Using Backtrack: Network Mapping: Identify Live Hosts: 5nmp

5nmp

Purpose:

Finding live hosts.

Discussion:

This tool uses SNMP to scan for hosts, which is a different thing than simply pinging them. Hosts willingly spill their guts to SNMP queries, making this a good LAN enumerating tool.

Unfortunately, this is a Windows tool written in C# and ported to BackTrack via Mono. With my most recent dist-upgrade it finally works, using a GUI that’s supposedly “self-explanatory.” True enough, with the caveat: check the Dictionary Mode or Brute Force Mode checkboxes, or you’re not really doing much.

Stage:
