security/nmap If the box pings, you can simply scan your LAN like: $ nmap -sP 192.168.2.0/24 Starting Nmap 4.76 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2009-03-23 11:05 AKDT <hosts snipped> Nmap done: 256 IP addresses (18 hosts up) scanned in 1.11 seconds There's tons of options available (including OS fingerprinting), most of which will require root to run as it needs on-the-fly changes to IP packets. -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
