Pen Testing Map

   I've been pen testing for a few months now and find that with all the tools out there and which tool to use on what 
I lose track.  We also have new joiners to our organisation and to help with that I've STARTED to put together a help 
guide to a basic pen test, including what requirements are need for the test, tools to use on what, syntax, links to 
their sites etc..  I'm basically after:

Constructive Feedback
Helpful tips and pointers:
   Tools and Syntax for other ports not listed
   (I've done about 25 services so far)
   Other Suggestions

Its available here:


Its very busy, but I'm trying to be as verbose as possible to provide as much info as possible. Basically a one-stop 
shop for a newbie

I've used freemind (thanks for the pointer nebs) http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
to generate this and I'm hoping may prove useful and a good reminder when I forget.

Hope this helps. TIA
