Once the startup process is complete, you’ll be presented with the main user interface. The Armitage UI has three main panels: modules, targets, and tabs. You may tap the area between these panels to resize them just as you would prefer.

Let’s perform a deep scanning technique on the network using this tool. To do so, click on the “Hosts” tab and select the “Nmap_Scan” menu. Nmap Scan menu will provide several scanning options; select the “Intense Scan” option to begin the scanning process. Alternatively, you may type “db_Nmap” in a console to dispatch Nmap with the options you choose.
