Zenmap Installation Guide



Zenmap is the official Nmap Security Scanner GUI. It is a multi-platform (Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, BSD, etc.) free and open-source application which aims to make Nmap easy for beginners to use while providing advanced features for experienced Nmap users. A command creator allows interactive creation of Nmap command lines.

Scan results can be saved and viewed later. Saved scan results can be compared with one another to see how they differ. The results of recent scans are stored in a searchable database.

Unfortunately, Zenmap is no longer being part of Kali Linux pre-installed software. No worries, we are here to help you with the installation guide.
  • Download Zenmap from here. (Optional Zenmap GUI, under Linux RPM section)
  • Or you can type the following command in terminal. 
wget https://nmap.org/dist/zenmap-7.80-1.noarch.rpm
  • We need to convert .rpm file to a .deb using Alien. To install alien sudo apt install alien -y.
  • After installation type, sudo alien <file_nmae> i.e. 
sudo alien zenmap-7.80-1.noarch.rpm
  • Install the zenmap using dpkg. Type the following command in terminal.
sudo dpkg -i zenmap_7.80-2_all.deb
