Nipper Tool

Hi Experts,

I am trying to download Nipper software to conduct a security audit on my network.

I downloaded the zip file from the following link


I am unable to locate the nippper.exe file in the folder and when I try to run nipper command the cmd complains as "nipper is not recognized as an internal or external command."

Following is the output of dir to that folder:

 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is E449-18B3

 Directory of C:\Users\naziz\Desktop\Nipper\NipperExt

I have already gone through this article.

The link provided to download nipper is not working.

Hence I downloaded nipper from the link I mentioned in my first post. It doesn't show me the .exe file. The file that is there is .c file and I think we will have convert that to .exe file through some compiler. I am not sure how to do that without a lot of hassle.
