I love to experiment with various software and one of those essential system that I play around is kali. I’ve setup mine in ESXI server that I cannot directly connect. This is one of the way you can RDP into your kali and experience full GUI access.
Here is the codes that you need to run in sudo mode.
If you are familiar with PENTEST and Kali linux platform, you should know nmap which is great vulnerability scanning tool. But recent version of kali has dropped ZENMAP which is GUI base for nmap which great tool to run nmap in GUI and also to generate command line to run on nmap.
Few of my blog readers mentioned to me that after Kali 2020.4 my previous method of installing Zenmap no longer works. So after breaking few VM images and few swear moment I was able to figure out a way to install Zenmap GUI in new Kali. 🙂
Then bring up terminal from the place downloaded the tar package and run sudo su and get the root access. After that run below command in sequence. Very good guide here https://nmap.org/book/inst-source.html
apt-get updatebzip2 -cd nmap-7.91.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -
then install each package with dpkg -i <each package name from above>
As a example dpkg -i ./python-cairo_1.16.2-2ubuntu2_amd64.deb
Once you down you will be able to see zenmap from search window in kali. But if you want to run Zenmap as root you need to brows into place where tar package got unzip. In my case download folder nmap 7.91 and bring terminal and run sudo su and then ./zenmap.
