 From the code http://nmap.org/svn/scripts/http-brute.nse :
local path = nmap.registry.args['http-brute.path']

if ( not(path) ) then
                return "  \n  ERROR: No path was specified (see http-brute.path)"

So it appears that you are getting an error message because there is
no registry key of 'http-brute.path'.

On what operating system/version are you running the command?

Hello! If I have bothered you by any mean, I am realy sorry, but either solve my problem or direct me to the URL,
my problem:

Starting Nmap 5.61TEST5 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2012-05-31 16:43 PKT

I do not understand the ERROR message.
Thank you.
It means he should use --script-args="/somepath"

And thinking about it, the path should be default to root like most
other http scripts.

local path = nmap.registry.args['http-brute.path'] or "/"
I believe that http-brute requires a script argument by design, to
reduce the chance that you run it accidentally.

I don't it is necessary, given that there is already a generic test before launching the brute force.

if ( response.status ~= 401 ) then
return (" \n Path \"%s\" does not require authentication"):format(path)
