Hacking Nmap: Using Nmap to Calculate Network Response Time


I usually don't cross-post information about articles my other sites, but this one has some information that might be useful for network professionals.

I've just posted an article that shows how to use Nmap to get an accurate perspective of network response time. If you're just using a ping command to check for response time, you're missing an opportunity to gather more accurate network response time measurements. Have a look and let me know what you think!

It's flattering. No, really. Ok, not really.

I'd like to thank everyone for their "heads-up" email messages regarding an article that Slashdot.org featured recently. I tend to agree with most of you, there are shocking similarities to Kirby "Kev" Tucker's article and my Nmap ebook. Shocking, I say.

That said, the management of the site-in-question is already in touch with me, and they're handling things well thus far. Thanks again for your support!
