Install Angry IP Scanner on Kali Linux

Angry IP Scanner (or simply ipscan) is an open-source and cross-platform network scanner designed to be fast and simple to use. It is a very fast IP address and port scanner. It can scan IP addresses in any range as well as any their ports. It is cross-platform and lightweight. Not requiring any installations, it can be freely copied and used anywhere.

Angry IP scanner simply pings each IP address to check if it’s alive, then optionally it is resolving its hostname, determines the MAC address, scans ports, etc. The amount of gathered data about each host can be extended with plugins.

It also has additional features, like NetBIOS information (computer name, workgroup name, and currently logged in Windows user), favorite IP address ranges, web server detection, customizable openers, etc.

Scanning results can be saved to CSV, TXT, XML or IP-Port list files. With help of plugins, Angry IP Scanner can gather any information about scanned IPs. Anybody who can write Java code is able to write plugins and extend functionality of Angry IP Scanner. Install Angry IP Scanner on Kali Linux - blackMORE Ops 2

It runs on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X, possibly supporting other platforms as well.

Install Angry IP Scanner on Kali Linux

For Linux we can download a .deb package. Kali Linux is a Debian based operating system, so we can simply install that downloaded .deb package on Kali Linux. Use the following link to download the .deb file:

You will see something like this:

Download version 3.4 below or browse previous releases or even older releases.

Download DEB Package for Ubuntu/Debian/Mint, depending on your Kali installation, pick either 32-bit or the 64-bit package. Now I am using a very old laptop that doesn’t even support 64-bit, so I’ll download the 32-bit .deb file and install that. In your case, you are most likely to run a newer version or a in a Virtual environment. So amend the filename as required.

Install .deb package using dpkg

Install the downloaded .deb package using the following command

root@kali:~/Downloads# dpkg -i ipscan_3.4_i386.deb

        I have uninstalled and deleted everything from Kali and sudo reboot. Then I reinstall everything again. I thought that for some reason, I would try the 64bit just in case. Nope, it tells me right off the bat that it is the wrong one. I am also having trouble with eclipse and I don’t know if somehow the two are related issues or not.

        I also did:

        raspi@kali:~$ sudo dpkg –print-architecture

        and got back-


        I was at the understanding that armhf meant 32bit? Please someone help me.
