I had the following problem on OpenBSD 4.1.

nmap -sS -P0 -vv


nmap -A -P0 -vv

gives me:

However the following works

nmap -sT -P0 -vv

Nmap does an ARP scan of directly connected Ethernet hosts even if -P0
is used. See http://insecure.org/nmap/man/man-host-discovery.html. But I
don't know why the ARP scan would fail when the connect scan works.
Please send the output of

nmap -sS -P0 -d2 --packet-trace
