NMAP Changes?

Hi, what do you think to change the nmap command, and the nmap site?

Latest nmap change some parameters like -P0 to -PN. -P0 is obsolete.

Sample command should be now: nmap –PN –sT –sV –p1-65535

If fact, nmap has the abilily to scan port number 0, so we can do better with:

nmap –PN –sT –sV –p0-65535

And the nmap site is now. But is still there.

v3 Review Comments

Similar to the previous section this section seems more like Service discovery than application discovery. We're still learning things about the server and not as much about the application(s) we're assessing. IMHO.
May this section should be renamed to something like "Discovery of web server services and web applications on a host". Rick.mitchell 09:55, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Merge with (OWASP-IG-004)

This article should be merged with 4.2.4 Testing for Web Application Fingerprint (OWASP-IG-004) and renamed to web server finger printing as both these pages talk about server level finger printing.

also if i may put forward I have tried to cover some steps of web application finger printing here : I hope this could be of some use in the correct page of web application finger printing.
