Welcome to the lesson on installing and map on Windows. In this lesson, I'm gonna walk you through finding, downloading and installing and map on the Windows operating system.
We won't get into scanning too much just yet, except for a single test scan. But by the end of this lesson, you should have a fully functioning Windows and map scanning station.
So many of you are probably thinking you could skip through these lessons
and you might be right.
But I am going to throw a couple of tips and tricks in about special configuration options and insulation tips that could
easily be overlooked yet very helpful for covering tracks during the penetration test.
Let's get started.
Here are the learning objectives For this lesson.
I'm gonna show you where to get unmapped
the best way to download it.
Then we'll do a lab on installing it
in the lab. I'm gonna walk you through installing and map, but first I want to run through a couple quick points.
This might sound really obvious, but the best place to get N map for Windows is simply by navigating to the end map website at N map dot or GE
There are many other sites that offer various versions of N map, but why not just get it from the source, right?
MD five Show one and shot 2 56 Hashes are available there to verify and validate the authenticity and integrity of downloaded files.
Downloading and map directly can best be performed by going straight to and map dot or GE wack download.
If you want to read extremely valuable details about how N map runs on Windows, including its history on Windows, a comparison between NP cap and Wimpy cap
registry hacks and setting environment variables, go to the Earl I've included in this slide.
Here are a couple more quick points
on the end map download page. You can either download the latest stable release self installer, or you can download the latest stable command line ZIP file
with the latest stable release self installer.
You'll get one file that includes everything necessary to install and run and map
with a command line only version. You simply get in map without a couple other things that will optimize its performance.
There's only one reason I bring this up
if you're performing a penetration test and have compromised a machine that happens to have a packet capture library and a version of the Microsoft Visual c++ re distributable packages installed.
You should definitely try to use the command line on Lee version of en map
as I'll show you in the removal lesson. You'll be able to do your work, then clear your tracks using a built in and rarely used Windows Command line tool called Cipher.
Here are the things will cover in this lab
By the end of it, your Windows computer will be ready to do everything I do throughout the rest of this course.
Let's do it.
Okay, welcome to the lab on installing and map in Zen map on Windows.
Open up your favorite browser
in the address bar now,
but I been and map dot or GE to go to the official and map website.
Now, once you're there at the top of the page in the header, you'll see a download link. Click it to go to the download page,
scroll down to the section that says Microsoft Windows Binaries.
That section has some really good information in it. If you get stuck,
you'll see the end map set up Dottie XY Link next to the latest stable release self installer, and you'll also see the command line ZIP file that I mentioned earlier.
Simply click on the self installer version to begin your download.
Your browser might be different, so just walk through the process of downloading the file than finding it,
opening the folder it's in and double clicking it to begin the install.
Once that starts, just agreed to the licensing agreement. If you want to read it, you can.
Now you'll just choose the components that you want to install for this lab. We'll just leave him all selected and just click next.
Then I'll ask you where you want to install. It will choose next.
After that's done,
the license agreement for NP cap will pop up.
Feel free to read through that if you'd like,
then when you're ready,
click. I agree.
The insulation options for NP cap will be displayed, including some options about the coexistence or replacement of wind. Peek out.
Just leave these as the default
and click install.
This could take a little bit of time in might temporarily disconnect your network connection, but after it's finished
here in a little bit.
Like I said, it takes some time.
Then click next again and you'll have the option for
creating the shortcuts for Zen map in a Start Menu folder and on the desktop.
Just leave those is the default options and click next.
Now you should have an icon for Zen Map the gooey friend map on your desktop. Once you're ready,
we'll verify that the Zen map shortcuts on your desktop
and now well, uh, open a command prompt.
Now let's just start with a really simple and map test scan to make sure things are working. Type
space. Scan me dot and mt dot org's to run a scan of and maps tests Can server
Wait a couple seconds.
And if you see similar results to mine, you know that and map is working.
Yep, so and maps working and now you can simply type exit to get out
and we're finished.
