IP Scanner tool

Hey guys..

What is the best tool that can be used on Linux for IP scanning tool that can bring ping status, hostname, and any other open service. I wish I can find a tool like "The Dude" from Mikrotik, but that works only under Windows.

There is a tool called Etherape that is probably pretty similar.

Linux isn't Windows. So at least in some cases, while there are ways to get the information, Linux doesn't spray the network constantly with sensitive information like Windows does. In particular, what a host calls itself isn't necessarily easy. At best you can do IP to DNS name correlation, but that's really outside of the host itself.

For the rest, e.g. port scanning and service information...

nmap is your friend.

Also, unlike Windows, service scanning can be slow... which is a security feature. The insecurity of Windows arguably makes it "friendlier" for scanning...
