File broadcast-dhcp-discover

Script types: prerule
Categories: broadcast, safe
Download: http://nmap.org/svn/scripts/broadcast-dhcp-discover.nse

User Summary

Sends a DHCP request to the broadcast address (255.255.255.255) and reports the results. The script uses a static MAC address (DE:AD:CO:DE:CA:FE) while doing so in order to prevent scope exhaustion.

The script reads the response using pcap by opening a listening pcap socket on all available ethernet interfaces that are reported up. If no response has been received before the timeout has been reached (default 10 seconds) the script will abort execution.

The script needs to be run as a privileged user, typically root.

Script Arguments

broadcast-dhcp-discover.timeout

time in seconds to wait for a response (default: 10s)

Example Usage

sudo nmap --script broadcast-dhcp-discover
