comment Nmap scan output for other nmap scan
@BobEbert No, in this case "deprecated" means it won't be extended any more with new features. You can't get NSE script output, traceroute info, MAC address, or CPE identifiers in grepable output; you must use XML output for a machine-readable replacement. But it's not going anywhere because it's a very useful way to script the core features of Nmap.

@schroeder -sP still works, we just prefer everyone to use the new syntax.

comment Missing scripts in NMAP
As a general rule, each version of Nmap that is an increment from a previous one will be a bugfix-only release. So 7.10 was a feature release, and 7.11 and 7.12 were bugfix releases. Always prefer the latest bugfix release!

comment Nmap doesn't scan the whole range of IPs
@aurelien75000 4 ports/host is 4 host detection probes (a.k.a. "ping scan"). Host discovery uses larger hostgroups. When that finishes, it scans for open ports (1000 ports/host) using smaller groups of targets.

comment Using nmap to bypass a firewall and perform OS fingerprinting
Did you use -Pn or -PN (same thing)? That tells Nmap that the target is up, regardless of what reality is. Nmap is just taking your word for it. Use --reason to see why it thinks so.

Insufficient information to go on. If all ports are filtered, how do you know there is anything at that address? If you get no response, there may as well not be.
