Hello Michael,

I have used nessus, but I only know it as a vulnerability scanner, which
scans single systems (or a range of adresses) for weaknesses. But I first
want to get a picture of the network topology, and then perform scans of
single, exposed systems (or maybe a range ;-). Is nessus really able to
produce topology maps ?
