Dnscan Alternatives

    Dnscan is described as 'python wordlist-based DNS subdomain scanner.
    The script will first try to perform a zone transfer using each of the target domain's nameservers.
    If this fails, it will lookup TXT and MX records for the domain'. There are three alternatives to Dnscan for Linux, the Web and Self-Hosted solutions. The best alternative is Sublist3r, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Dnscan are OWASP Amass (Free, Open Source) and Lepus Subdomain finder (Free, Open Source).
