Nmap integration

Last Updated: Nov 22, 2016 06:22AM UTC
The integration with Nmap was designed to detect routers, switches, printers, IP telephony, etc.

Nmap guesses the remote OS but understanding the TCP packets between the device to their engine so it should have at least one open port to make good guess (it compares the results with its fingerprints to determine the OS), the data is contained in a static file that is updated every release.

As long as the device has an open port Nmap will be able to determine to the best of its abilities the OS/ device type as you saw in your environment and as I have seen in mine. This is also the reason it detects better routers, switches, etc. which are managed so if the Mac will have agent like SSH or others it will be detected in most cases.

The command use in the integration is Nmap -O
