Here is screenshot0, screenshot1 and screenshot2 and here's the tarball for nmap-web-1.71 (2002_07_20) ... VERY simply to install/configure/run ...

       nmap-web: A quick-n-dirty Web interface to nmap

nmap at Insecure.Org is a very powerful and easy to use tool to
check which ports are open/responding on your computer. Note that a LOT
more things can be done with it (ex: remote OS fingerprinting) ... check out 
the web site for more info.  It is LIGHTENING fast ... depending on the number 
of ports you scan, rates of 100+hosts/seconds are easily obtainable.

While this can (IS!) be used by the "bad guys" ... it is actually a very useful
tool for the "good guys" for a couple of reasons:
   - You should be aware of what ports are open on your machines and insure
     that only those you want/need/know (!) are open. Using nmap allows you
     to easily determine this so you can then take appropriate action.

   - If a "bad guy" does install a back door that listens on a port,
     then you should be able to detect that something is amiss by using nmap.

   - Say you are interested in: How many of my machines are web servers?
     nmap is pretty darn good for stuff like this.

   - Have I upgraded to the latest sendmail everywhere? nmap-web can tell
     you the program/version number answering at a specific port.

The later reason is mostly why I wrote nmap-web ... which is basically
a web interface to nmap and allows you to (via a web interface) quickly
and easily select a list of ports and a list of hosts and it tells you
which machines have which open ports. nmap generates this output itself;
but nmap-web makes it just a little bit easier.

nmap-web requires Perl (and nmap!  ;-) and should be runnable under any
Web Server running on any *NIX platform. Note that nmap-web only scans tcp
ports, so it can be run as a "normal" user - i.e. no root access is required,
which would be needed to scan udp ports. That could easily be changed, but I
wanted to keep it simple. Pls see the INSTALL document for the misc. tweeks 
you'll need to make to get it working at your site.
