Compiling Nmap form source on Ubuntu (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Compiling Nmap form source on Ubuntu



        Along the way to making a video on Ncat I needed to compile Nmap 5 from source, so I figured I might as well do a video on that as well. There are many reasons why you might want to compile Nmap from source instead of just using the package manager:

1. The is no Nmap package for your distro.
2. There may be features that are in the source tree that are not in the package for your distro.
3. You want to be bleeding edge, or the version of Nmap in the repositories is old.
4. Just so you know you can.

Let's get to compiling!!!
