I am also running vista, and here's what happened for me. I do have the
latest winpcap and all that. I get the same output if I run as administrator
or not.

Command:

nmap -sS 192.168.1.1 > out 2> err

standard out:

***

There are several possible reasons for this, depending on your operating
system:
LINUX: If you are getting Socket type not supported, try modprobe af_packet
or recompile your kernel with SOCK_PACKET enabled.
*BSD:  If you are getting device not configured, you need to recompile your
kernel with Berkeley Packet Filter support.  If you are getting No such file
or directory, try creating the device (eg cd /dev; MAKEDEV <device>; or use
mknod).
*WINDOWS:  Nmap only supports ethernet interfaces on Windows for most
operations because Microsoft disabled raw sockets as of Windows XP SP2.
Depending on the reason for this error, it is possible that the
--unprivileged command-line argument will help.
SOLARIS:  If you are trying to scan localhost and getting '/dev/lo0: No such
file or directory', complain to Sun.  I don't think Solaris can support
advanced localhost scans.  You can probably use "-PN -sT localhost" though.


QUITTING!

Anything else I can do?

Take care,

Just a quick follow up.... it looks like 3.23RC3 still does not work 
for me on my Windows Vista machine. Looks good on XP.

Hi Alan.  Thanks for the report.  Would you try installing the latest
official WinPcap installer from http://www.winpcap.org/ and then rerun
3.23RC3 and see if that helps?

If that doesn't work, would you try installing Network Monitor 3.1 and see
if that helps?  You can find it at:

Please let us know how it goes.

Cheers,
