nmapfe (xnmap) - GTK+ graphical frontend to the Nmap Security Scanner
nmapfe [ any Glib options such as --display ]
Nmapfe (also known as xnmap) is a convenient X Window front end for the
Nmap Security Scanner. Most of the options correspond directly to Nmap
options, which are described in detail in the Nmap man page. We recom-
mend you read that first. There is also limited help available via the
NmapFE "Help" menu.
