Network Scanner

https://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/map_of_the_internet.jpg
https://travis-ci.org/AllGloryToTheHypnotoad/netscan2.svg?branch=master Latest Version License Code Health

Simple python script which uses pcap, arp-scan, and avahi to:

  1. Find hosts that are on the LAN passively
  2. Uses an arp-ping to actively identify hosts
  3. Scan each host to determine open ports and services
  4. Store record of hosts in JSON file, html webpage, or prints to screen

Note: Since IP addresses change, the hosts are finger printed via their MAC address.

Alternatives

Fing is a great and fast network scanner, I have their app on my iPad. However, the fing commandline tool for RPi I have noticed errors in the MAC address and therefor don't trust it for this application.

Install

Pre-requisites:

brew install pcap arp-scan

or

sudo apt-get install libpcap-dev arp-scan

Download and unzip, then from inside the package:

python setup.py install

If you are working on it:

pip install -e .

Run

To run:

netscan
ascan
pscan
gethostname
getvendor
ipwhois
