RE: nmap for Wintendo (NT/Win2K)

For security audits, we have very successfully used VMWare under NT4 & Win2k
to boot Linux and run nmap - and it works like a dream!

I agree, I just finished an audit where I used vmWare on Linux to host NT
(which is opposite your config).  Worked well, except when I was
performing a class B nmap in linux while running l0phtcrack on 5500 hashes
on the NT side, all on 64 megs of RAM. ;)

I did have problems getting Cybercop to behave under vmWare though, but I
think that was more a user error. ;)  (use of Cybercop was in the scope,
and I only used it to quantify the needless amount of paperwork those
types of scanners produce.  14 hosts => 198 pages of report.  Happy
