Re: Nmap on Windows NT?

Aside from WXP firewall issues (i.e. you need winpcap installed if you want to use it from behind the Internet Connection Firewall), I haven't had any problems with recent builds. On the other hand, the new -sS default may cause a problem for some people, and this is not set in NmapNT. nmap (3.00) should work all the time with -sT, except that it doesn't. I'll take a look at that in the next couple of days (I hope).

If anyone has problems w/ nmap 3.00 on Windows, post a --win_trace -d -d output, as that should have useful information.

BTW, the rawsock mode should always work on W2K _if you are admin_. If it doesn't work, try --win_forcerawsock.

I have received several messages like the one below.  Does anyone know
why NmapNT would work on some machines that fail with standard Nmap?
What can we do to fix this?  Does Nmap fail on all NT machines, or
just some of them?

I noticed that you dont have Nmap for NT posted in your download
section.  I found out the hard way and tried the windows2k/98/ME
version.  When you use that version on NT you get an error about No
Raw Access to the Ethernet device.  Browsing the net I found someone
or eEye Digital Security  that ported Nmap to windows NT
(http://www.eeye.com/html/Research/Tools/nmapNT.html).    I just
thought you might want to add that to your downloads section.  It
doesn't have a GUI interface but it works.
