A default usage example. For more advanced and possible options please see here

The example show shows the types of host ranges supported. In this example the default IANA range of reserved ports is scanned per host in each range (1024).

var nmap = require('node-libnmap')
  , opts = {
      range: [
        'scanme.nmap.org',
        '10.0.2.0/25',
        '192.168.10.80-120',
        'fe80::42:acff:fe11:fd4e/64'
      ]
    };
 
nmap.scan(opts, function(errreport) {
  if (err) throw new Error(err);
 
  for (var item in report) {
    console.log(JSON.stringify(report[item]));
  }
});

The discover method requires nodejs < v0.11.2 and can be used to aquire information about neighbors per network interface.

var nmap = require('node-libnmap');
 
nmap.discover(opts, function(errreport) {
  if (err) throw new Error(err);
 
  for (var item in report) {
    console.log(JSON.stringify(report[item]));
  }
});
