Web front end to nmap using remote server for scanning w/results?

I'm looking for something Like MyNmap integrated with Remote Nmap.

Basically I'd like to view nmap results on a webpage, and have scans run regularly using a remote server.  I'm not sure anyone has written this.  The two features exist separately (MyNmap & Remote Nmap).

here's a quick def each:
"MyNmap is a tool that uses Apache, PHP, MySQL, and Perl (designed to run on Linux, BSD, or other Unix clones) to display nmap network scan data for large networks"

"Remote nmap (Rnmap) is a pair of client and server programs which allow for various authorised clients to run their port scans from a centralised server."

any ideas?

if you mean to use nmap for web application security (HTTP), the simply forget about it for now as it is not much usefull for that
for (pen)testeing web applications you need specialised tools

Thank you very much for responding.  I'm not trying to use nmap for web app securitty (HTTP).  I'm trying to portscan my subnets from outside my firewall remotely and send the results to servers in side my firewall... then display the results on a webpage....

Here's the gist:
  1. I'm trying to map our firewall by portscanning our subnets (using nmap) from an outside location
      ex: nmap -T4 --version-light -sV -F -O 63.115.253.0/24
  2. All portscan results would be dumped to a MySQL database behind our firewall (probably through a ssh tunnel using a tool called nmap-sql)
  3. A website behind our firewall would then display the portscan results (by querying the MySQL database).
 ex:
IP---------------open ports------
192.168.1.0 |   80/443
192.168.1.1 |   22
192.168.1.2 |   N/A
192.168.1.3 |   443,3386

do you mean something like:

nmap -T4 --version-light -sV -F -O 63.115.253.0/24|awk '/open ports/{print "IPport"}($3=="|"){print ""$1""$3""}END{print "}'> open-ports.html

that html output would be sufficent except that I wanted the ip/port info stored in a mysql database (that way I could get a historical view of specific ip's and what ports they have had open over time)

like i said, the two tools i mentioned in my original post can do these two things.... i guess i am looking for a non-gui version of remote nmap... that's really all i'd need to accomplish this
