I was using Zenmap (SVN) and trying out the Compare Results feature. I
opened two XML files I wanted to view the differences between (mainly
just to test it out), but nothing happened. When I clicked "Open in
Browser" to see if that would do anything, it just said to select two
files to diff.
Brokenness Question: Doesn't Zenmap support straight XML files or just
the USR thing? I thought it used both, but maybe this is causing some
of my problems.
Hi Kris. I think I have fixed this.
There was indeed a bug that prevented plain Nmap XML files from being
compared. The comparison window was checking the Nmap output of each
selected scan against the empty string to see if a scan had been
selected or not. When you loaded a scan whose output *is* the empty
string (a plain Nmap XML output file), it falsely assumed that you
hadn't selected a scan yet.
Great, thanks. It seems to work fine now.
You still don't get anything from the HTML browser view, because that
only compares the text outputs. Now it gives a more helpful error
message explaining the situation instead of claiming you haven't
selected two scans yet.
Oh, gotcha--I didn't know it only diff'd the text. The new error message
definitely helps :)
