What is Zenmap?

Zenmap is a free, open-source, and multi-platform application that is the official Nmap Security Scanner GUI and is designed to be used with Nmap. It supports Windows, Linux, Ubuntu, Fedora, Kali, Mint, MacOS, BSD, CentOS and etc.  Zenmap makes Nmap easier for beginners and offers advanced features for experienced Nmap users. Also, it can be used by beginners to scan the network and discover vulnerabilities. Zenmap scans the network of a particular IP address or domain and displays the domain details.

Zenmap Features

1) Scan multi ports

2) Scan basic Nmap IP or host

3) Scan TCP or UDP ports

4) Scan for MAC address spoofing

5) Scan IPv6 Addresses

6) Detect malware infections on remote hosts

7) Detect service/daemon versions

8) Launch DOS

9) Launch brute force attacks

10) Disable DNS name resolution

11) Find the open port

12) Check the number of packets send or receive

Difference between Zenmap and Nmap

Zenmap has advanced features that make Nmap easy for novice developers. Zenmap is also using to display Nmap output, which can show the difference between two scans where these scans run more than once. It means Zenmap provides an interface for comparing scan results and can detect the changes even when the same scan is run on different days.

Nmap is a network scanner and is known for port mapping used to identify hosts and services. Nmap scans the computer network and provides a network for hosting exploration and services. It can detect the hosts and services of the network which is used for scanning. It should be noted that Nmap is written in C, C++, Python, and Lua but Zenmap is the GUI of Nmap and it is not possible to say in which programming language it is written.

In the continuation of this article, join us to show you how to install Zenmap on Ubuntu 22.04.

Installing Zenmap on Ubuntu 22.04

Zenmap isn’t available on the official Ubuntu repository and you have to install it manually. Before doing anything, update your system packages by entering the following command:

sudo apt update

Now you should install Nmap using the following command:

sudo apt install nmap

In this step, you need to install Python GTK on your Ubuntu 22.04 system by running the following command. Because Zenmap uses Python GTK to create a graphical user interface.

wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/p/pygtk/python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb  
sudo apt install ./python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb

Now it’s time to download the Zenmap Debian package. To do this, run the following command:

wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/n/nmap/zenmap_7.60-1ubuntu5_all.deb

Also, you can download it by visiting the following address:

http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/n/nmap/

To install Zenmap just enter the following command:

sudo apt install ./zenmap_7.60-1ubuntu5_all.de

How to Use Zenmap on Ubuntu 22.04

If you want to access Zenmap features and use it on your Ubuntu 22.04 system, you should run Zenmap as a root user. To do this, use the following command:

sudo zenmap

You can scan the network by typing the IP address or hostname.

In order for users to confirm the availability of the computer, they have to choose from the drop-down box from a variety of analyzes such as full scan, simple scan, or ping scan. You can see the separate steps in Nmap in the Nmap output window on the right:

Conclusion

First, we introduced the Zenmap and enumerated its features. We also explained the difference between Zenmap and Nmap. Then we taught you how to install Zenmap on Ubuntu 22.04. Zenmap allows users to save and compare scans performed and also lets them see network topology maps, and viewports running on hosts on a network and store scans on a searchable database. I hope this tutorial was useful for you.

      Check if the python is executed properly using the command below:
      python
      Then you should unpack the .deb file and remove python in its dependency. Repack it again.
      Now let a soft link /usr/bin/python to indicate python2:
      cd /usr/bin
      sudo mv python python_old
      sudo ln -s python2 python
      Restore /usr/bin/python again:
      sudo rm python
      sudo mv python_old python
      You should get the cairo and gobject-2 .debs as shown below:
      wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/p/pycairo/python-cairo_1.16.2-2ubuntu2_amd64.deb
      wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/p/pygobject-2/python-gobject-2_2.28.6-14ubuntu1_amd64.deb

      Finally, install the three .debs with the command below:
      sudo dpkg -i python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb python-cairo_1.16.2-2ubuntu2_amd64.deb python-gobject-2_2.28.6-14ubuntu1_amd64.deb

    Tip: Don’t post procedures without first testing them. the blog loses credibility

    sudo apt install ./python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb
    [sudo] password for user:
    Reading package list… Done
    Creating dependency tree… Done
    Reading status information… Done
    Note, selecting “python-gtk2” instead of “./python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb”
    Do not can instal some pack. This can mean that
    you asked for an impossible situation or, if you are using the distribution
    unstable, that some necessary packages have not yet been created or are
    They have taken from «Incoming».
    The following information may help resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    python-gtk2 : Depends: python (= 2.7) but it’s not installable
    Depends: python:any (>= 2.6.6-7~) but it’s not installable
    Depends: python-cairo (>= 1.0.2-1.1) but it’s not installable
    Depends: python-gobject-2 (>= 2.21.3) but it’s not installable
    E: Could not fix problems, you have broken packages on hold.

      Remove the python dependency using the following command:

      python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb.

      Now, you’ll need to wget the cairo and gobject-2 .debs:

      wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/p/pycairo/python-cairo_1.16.2-2ubuntu2_amd64.deb
      wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/p/pygobject-2/python-gobject-2_2.28.6-14ubuntu1_amd64.deb

      Finally, install the command below:

      sudo dpkg -i python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb python-cairo_1.16.2-2ubuntu2_amd64.deb python-gobject-2_2.28.6-14ubuntu1_amd64.deb

        It DOESN’T

    This does NOT work.
    I get the following error message:
    Note, selecting ‘python-gtk2’ instead of ‘./python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb’
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    python-gtk2 : Depends: python (= 2.7) but it is not installable
    Depends: python:any (>= 2.6.6-7~) but it is not installable
    Depends: python-cairo (>= 1.0.2-1.1) but it is not installable
    Depends: python-gobject-2 (>= 2.21.3) but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
