Re: [BUG]? Unrecognized option --resume

Nmap is giving me a error when I am trying to use the --resume option.

I get a different error to you...

nmap xxx.xxx.xx.xx -P0 -vv -oN testresume

nmap --resume testresume
..\utils.cc(996): CreateFileMapping(), file 'testresume', length 103,

00006: The parameter is incorrect.

This occured on 4.11 (tested on XP) and 4.20 (tested on Vista) too,

AgentSmith15, if you use --resume the only other argument you can pass is
the name of the output file.

"if normal (-oN) or grepable (-oG) logs were kept, the user can ask Nmap
to resume scanning with the target it was working on when execution
ceased. Simply specify the --resume option and pass the normal/grepable
output file as its argument. No other arguments are permitted, as Nmap
parses the output file to use the same ones specified previously"


Hopefully running:

nmap --resume scandata

Should give you more luck (the error message you're seeing isn't exactly
very useful), but I suspect you might hit the same error I've just seen.

Is it possible that it's dying because the output file only contains the
nmap command, and there isn't any other output in the file to work out
where to resume from?
