Question IP scanner for Linux


hi!

i'm using Angry IP scanner for Windows to scan an IP range just to get ip resolved to hostname, scan open port etc.

is there is similar IP scanner for Linux for such functions that i can use for?

The command-line port IP/port scanner is nmap. There are a couple of GUI front ends to this program: nmapfe and knmap, although IMO you'd be better off using the command line version.

it's Angry IP scanner - for Windows
and i'm here searching for the same tools which can deliberate the same functions
yes i've tried nmap, but nmap can only resolve one IP at one time
i need to make it resolve in a range e.g 202.185.0.1 - 202.185.0.255
simple task such as IP to hostname resolve in a range of IP set

nmap can do ranges. You do it like this:
Code:
nmap 202.185.0.1-255
If you just want to see if the machine responds to pings (rather than doing a service scan, which is the default operation), you just add the -sP option. To save the results in a file, you can use shell re-direction - e.g.
Code:
nmap -sP 202.185.0.1-255 > my_scan_results.txt
There are many options to nmap, such as turning off DNS resolution (which can speed things up a lot), and doing scans in parallel etc etc etc. It is a very flexible tool. You should read the manual page to get an idea of what it is capable of.
