-p port ranges (Only scan specified ports) .
    This option specifies which ports you want to scan and overrides the default. Individual port numbers
    are OK, as are ranges separated by a hyphen (e.g.  1-1023). The beginning and/or end values of a
    range may be omitted, causing Nmap to use 1 and 65535, respectively. So you can specify -p- to scan
    ports from 1 through 65535. Scanning port zero.  is allowed if you specify it explicitly. For IP
    protocol scanning (-sO), this option specifies the protocol numbers you wish to scan for (0–255).

    When scanning both TCP and UDP ports, you can specify a particular protocol by preceding the port
    numbers by T: or U:. The qualifier lasts until you specify another qualifier. For example, the
    argument -p U:53,111,137,T:21-25,80,139,8080 would scan UDP ports 53, 111,and 137, as well as the
    listed TCP ports. Note that to scan both UDP and TCP, you have to specify -sU and at least one TCP
    scan type (such as -sS, -sF, or -sT). If no protocol qualifier is given, the port numbers are added
    to all protocol lists.  Ports can also be specified by name according to what the port is referred to
    in the nmap-services. You can even use the wildcards * and ? with the names. For example, to scan FTP
    and all ports whose names begin with “http”, use -p ftp,http*. Be careful about shell expansions and
    quote the argument to -p if unsure.

    Ranges of ports can be surrounded by square brackets to indicate ports inside that range that appear
    in nmap-services. For example, the following will scan all ports in nmap-services equal to or below
    1024: -p [-1024]. Be careful with shell expansions and quote the argument to -p if unsure.
-sC .
    Performs a script scan using the default set of scripts. It is equivalent to --script=default. Some
    of the scripts in this category are considered intrusive and should not be run against a target
    network without permission.
-sV (Version detection) .
    Enables version detection, as discussed above. Alternatively, you can use -A, which enables version
    detection among other things.
-n (No DNS resolution) .
    Tells Nmap to never do reverse DNS resolution on the active IP addresses it finds. Since DNS can be
    slow even with Nmap´s built-in parallel stub resolver, this option can slash scanning times.
-T paranoid|sneaky|polite|normal|aggressive|insane (Set a timing template) .
    While the fine-grained timing controls discussed in the previous section are powerful and effective,
    some people find them confusing. Moreover, choosing the appropriate values can sometimes take more
    time than the scan you are trying to optimize. So Nmap offers a simpler approach, with six timing
    templates. You can specify them with the -T option and their number (0–5) or their name. The template
    names are paranoid (0), sneaky (1), polite (2), normal (3), aggressive (4), and insane (5). The first
    two are for IDS evasion. Polite mode slows down the scan to use less bandwidth and target machine
    resources. Normal mode is the default and so -T3 does nothing. Aggressive mode speeds scans up by
    making the assumption that you are on a reasonably fast and reliable network. Finally insane mode.
    assumes that you are on an extraordinarily fast network or are willing to sacrifice some accuracy for

    These templates allow the user to specify how aggressive they wish to be, while leaving Nmap to pick
    the exact timing values. The templates also make some minor speed adjustments for which fine-grained
    control options do not currently exist. For example, -T4.  prohibits the dynamic scan delay from
    exceeding 10 ms for TCP ports and -T5 caps that value at 5 ms. Templates can be used in combination
    with fine-grained controls, and the fine-grained controls will you specify will take precedence over
    the timing template default for that parameter. I recommend using -T4 when scanning reasonably modern
    and reliable networks. Keep that option even when you add fine-grained controls so that you benefit
    from those extra minor optimizations that it enables.

    If you are on a decent broadband or ethernet connection, I would recommend always using -T4. Some
    people love -T5 though it is too aggressive for my taste. People sometimes specify -T2 because they
    think it is less likely to crash hosts or because they consider themselves to be polite in general.
    They often don´t realize just how slow -T polite.  really is. Their scan may take ten times longer
    than a default scan. Machine crashes and bandwidth problems are rare with the default timing options
    (-T3) and so I normally recommend that for cautious scanners. Omitting version detection is far more
    effective than playing with timing values at reducing these problems.

    While -T0.  and -T1.  may be useful for avoiding IDS alerts, they will take an extraordinarily long
    time to scan thousands of machines or ports. For such a long scan, you may prefer to set the exact
    timing values you need rather than rely on the canned -T0 and -T1 values.

    The main effects of T0 are serializing the scan so only one port is scanned at a time, and waiting
    five minutes between sending each probe.  T1 and T2 are similar but they only wait 15 seconds and 0.4
    seconds, respectively, between probes.  T3 is Nmap´s default behavior, which includes
    parallelization..  -T4 does the equivalent of --max-rtt-timeout 1250 --initial-rtt-timeout 500
    --max-retries 6 and sets the maximum TCP scan delay to 10 milliseconds.  T5 does the equivalent of
    --max-rtt-timeout 300 --min-rtt-timeout 50 --initial-rtt-timeout 250 --max-retries 2 --host-timeout
    15m as well as setting the maximum TCP scan delay to 5 ms.
nmap [Scan Type...] [Options] {target specification}
-oX filespec (XML output) .
    Requests that XML output be directed to the given filename. Nmap includes a document type definition
    (DTD) which allows XML parsers to validate Nmap XML output. While it is primarily intended for
    programmatic use, it can also help humans interpret Nmap XML output. The DTD defines the legal
    elements of the format, and often enumerates the attributes and values they can take on. The latest
    version is always available from

    XML offers a stable format that is easily parsed by software. Free XML parsers are available for all
    major computer languages, including C/C++, Perl, Python, and Java. People have even written bindings
    for most of these languages to handle Nmap output and execution specifically. Examples are
    Nmap::Scanner[15] and Nmap::Parser[16] in Perl CPAN. In almost all cases that a non-trivial
    application interfaces with Nmap, XML is the preferred format.

    The XML output references an XSL stylesheet which can be used to format the results as HTML. The
    easiest way to use this is simply to load the XML output in a web browser such as Firefox or IE. By
    default, this will only work on the machine you ran Nmap on (or a similarly configured one) due to
    the hard-coded nmap.xsl filesystem path. Use the --webxml or --stylesheet options to create portable
    XML files that render as HTML on any web-connected machine.
