I am pleased to announce that Nmap version 3.15BETA1 is now available.
I finally had a chance to integrate all of those submissions you guys
have sent in -- keep 'em coming whenever Nmap spits out the URL! This
was the largest DB update ever, and includes the latest Windows 2K/XP
changes, Cisco IOS 12.2-based routers and PIX 6.3 firewalls, FreeBSD
5.0, AIX 5.1, OpenBSD 3.2, Tru64 5.1A, IBM OS/400 V5R1M0, dozens of
wireless APs, VOIP devices, firewalls, printers, print servers, cable
modems, webcams, etc. We've even got some mod-chipped Xbox
fingerprints now! Special thanks go to the Windows users, who
contributed 774 fingerprints! That puts them in 2nd place between
Linux (2579) and FreeBSD (356). Not bad, considering Windows has been
supported for such a short time. It really seems to
be taking off, thanks to the hard work of Andy Lutomirksi, Jens Vogt,
You will also note that this is a "BETA" release as opposed
to the last 9 alphas. With your help (bug reports, patches, etc.) I
hope to quickly follow this by an official stable release. So if
there are any bugs or issues that are bothering you with this version,
speak now or forever hold your peace! Once the stable version is out,
I may work on some wickedly cool but deeply destabilizing major
changes -- so you may have to live with 3.16 (or whatever) for a
Here are the other changes in this release:
o Applied NetBSD portability patch by Darren Reed
(darrenr () reed wattle id au)
o Updated Makefile to better-detect if it can't make nmapfe and
provide a clearer error message. Also fixed a couple compiler
warnings on some *BSD platforms.
o Applied patch from "Max" (nmap () webwizarddesign com) which adds the
port owner to the "addport" XML output lines which are printed (only
in verbose mode, I think) as each open port is discovered.
o I killed the annoying whitespace that is normally appended after the
service name. Now it is only there when an owner was found via -sI
(in which case there is a fourth column and so "service" must be
exactly 24 characters).
For those of you running Linux/x86 w/a recent version of rpm
(www.rpm.org), you can install/upgrade to the newest version of
nmap/nmapfe by executing these commands as root:
rpm -vhU (nmap url)
where (nmap url) is one (or both) of these:
For the rest of you, source tarballs and source RPMs are always
