Umit, the graphical network scanner

Tuesday, 23 September 2008, 1:25 PM EST

Umit is a user-friendly graphical interface to Nmap that lets you perform network port scanning. The utility's most useful features are its stored scan profiles and the ability to search and compare saved network scans. A profile lets you configure how a network scan is performed, change the source information for the scan, and explicitly nominate hosts to include or exclude from the scan, as well as various more advanced options.

Umit is packaged for Ubuntu Intrepid but not for Hardy, and not for Fedora or openSUSE. I built version 0.9.5 of Umit from source on a 64-bit Fedora 9 machine on which version 4.53 of Nmap was installed.
