Graphical Nmap frontend and results viewer
zenmap [options] [results file]
Zenmap is a multi-platform graphical Nmap frontend and results viewer. Zenmap aims to make Nmap easy for beginners to use while giving experienced Nmap users advanced features. Frequently used scans can be saved as profiles to make them easy to run repeatedly. 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. This man page only describes the few Zenmap command-line options and some critical notes. A much more detailed Zenmap User's Guide is available at https://nmap.org/book/zenmap.html. Other documentation and information is available from the Zenmap web page at https://nmap.org/zenmap/.
-f, --file results file Open the given results file for viewing. The results file may be an Nmap XML output file (.xml, as produced by nmap -oX) or a Umit scan results file (.usr). This option may be given more than once. -h, --help Show a help message and exit. -n, --nmap Nmap command line Run the given Nmap command within the Zenmap interface. After -n or --nmap, every remaining command line argument is read as the command line to execute. This means that -n or --nmap must be given last, after any other options. Note that the command line must include the nmap executable name: zenmap -n nmap -sS target. -p, --profile profile Start with the given profile selected. The profile name is just a string: "Regular scan". If combined with -t, begin a scan with the given profile against the specified target. -t, --target target Start with the given target. If combined with -p, begin a scan with the given profile against the specified target. -v, --verbose Increase verbosity (of Zenmap, not Nmap). This option may be given multiple times to get even more verbosity. Any other arguments are taken to be the names of results files to open.

Like their authors, Nmap and Zenmap aren’t perfect. But you can help
make them better by sending bug reports or even writing patches. If
Nmap or Zenmap doesn’t behave the way you expect, first upgrade to the
latest version available from https://nmap.org. If the problem
persists, do some research to determine whether it has already been
discovered and addressed. Try Googling the error message or browsing
the nmap-dev archives at http://seclists.org/. Read this full manual
page as well. If nothing comes of this, mail a bug report to
Zenmap was originally derived from Umit, an Nmap GUI created during the Google-sponsored Nmap Summer of Code in 2005 and 2006. The primary author of Umit was Adriano Monteiro Marques. When Umit was modified and integrated into Nmap in 2007, it was renamed Zenmap.
