Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a free and open source utility for network discovery and security auditing

Nmap is a utility for network exploration or security auditing. It supports ping scanning (determine which hosts are up), many port scanning techniques, version detection (determine service protocols and application versions listening behind ports), and TCP/IP fingerprinting (remote host OS or device identification). Nmap also offers flexible target and port specification, decoy/stealth scanning, sunRPC scanning, and more. Most Unix and Windows platforms are supported in both GUI and commandline modes.

Once installed, this snap needs manually connecting to some plugs:

sudo snap connect nmap:network-control
