Blank Scan Results

Post by BartB »

Please see the examples below. My scans are coming out blank.
Also, NMAP is out of date. How do I get a more up to date version?

Thanks,
Bart

Small update. I manually installed a newer version of NMAP on the same system, and I got a scan result. It would appear that the issues stem from the plugin using an outdated version of NMAP: 6.47 vs. 7.70.

Are manual updates to NMAP the recommended way to fix this issue? Why is the plugin so far out of date, especially since when activating the plugin on a particular machine, and clicking "Install Net Detective" button, the plugin fetches NMAP and PCAP - why can't it fetch the latest version at this point?

Thank you.
Bart
