Maybe you typed the command wrong? I don't know for sure what you mean
by "http://nmap.org command," but if it's the "nmap -v -A targethost" on
that page, you need to be sure to enter the command without the
quotation marks. Try entering exactly

nmap -v -A scanme.nmap.org

If by mistake you entered the first quote but not the second, you would
see a ">", but that's not Nmap, that's the command shell waiting for you
to close the string.

Maybe that's not the problem. Try running the command with a high level
of debugging:

nmap -d4 -A scanme.nmap.org

If that produces output before it hangs, please send it to the list so
we can help solve the problem.
