Re: printable traceroute results script

Maybe it is indeed better to write graphing scripts that work on
nmap.xml. Mainly because the graphviz data may be inconveniently large
in some cases, and there is no proper way to store it in a file from a
script.

Can I somehow add edges from a script to the zenmap graph? Some
protocols reveal connection tables, so reporting the connections would
not be too hard, if there was an API to do that.

hello

I wanted to print traceroute results on paper, so I created a simple
NSE script for turning traceroute results into graphviz notation. One
can then use a graphviz tool called dot to create printable graphs
automatically from the data produced by nmap. I hope it is useful. It
is very simple at the moment. Feel free to discus improvements though.
I was not sure what would make sense, so I thought I'd put out a
simple version instead.

Thanks Toni. I think this would be better as a separate script (Perl,
Python, Ruby) that runs on an Nmap XML output file. Then it could
include the routes to mutliple hosts in one graph.

It already does. Just add multiple hosts as scan targets.

You're right. I'm sorry, I thought it was a hostrule script and not a
postrule. I can see the use in a script like this, in fact I wrote
something similar when I was working on traceroute. But I don't think
it's generally useful enough to include with Nmap. Especially when
Zenmap does something so similar.
