I'm required to do a pen test from public Internet of about 30 plus public IP of our company using nmap
before our auditor does it to close up gaps. Referring to above url,
what's the latest version that could run on Windows XP & Windows 7 ?
where can I download the scripts or the scripts are bundled?
Can I select to run a few types of scripts on one single command, say
auth, default, discovery, malware & vuln ? Do provide the exact syntax
to run these in a single line?
I have 6 hours per day (in the middle of the night) over 3 days to run,
so what should I do to get the scan completed in fastest possible time?
Will it be faster to scan from 1Gbps home fibre broadband of the same
ISP as what my company is hosted on or run multiple commands from
several command prompts at the same time or run from a 64bit PC
with as much RAM as possible (I have only 4GB of RAM on my X201)?
Will running it from a Linux laptop make it run faster?
Any way to limit the scan rate so that it the scans don't cause disruption?
Presumably I have to permit my scanning PC/laptop's IP from the perimeter
firewall prior to scanning? Need to permit anything from bluecoat proxy ?
