I would like to do Penetration Testing of our server. I have added firewall
on my server and I would like to test security of our server from out side
of allowed network. Can you please suggest me the tools from which i can
test security of the server.
I think the question is a little bad posed.
I suggest you to start thinking about *what* you want to pentest, and
what you want to achieve (a simple vulnerability assessment, an in-depth
pen-test to your network heart, /etc) and then plan what to do to
achieve it. What tools you want to use follows from this.
I know about nmap and nessus security scanner.
Yes, they are two general tools to do network scanning and vulnerability
