I'm getting errors when running Nmap in Vista with
multiple virtual adapters. It worked fine until I
installed VMWare and Andlinux. Now, I get this error
when  attempting a scan:

Starting Nmap 4.60
dnet: Failed to open device eth4 

I then specified my eth0 adapter.
nmap -e eth0 x.x.x.x 

Starting Nmap 4.60
NmapArpCache() can only take IPv4 addresses. Sorry

I then disabled all my interfaces except the ethernet
and ran nmap:

Starting Nmap 4.60
dnet: Failed to open device eth3

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi William. Please send the output of running
        nmap --iflist
        WinDump -D
You can get the WinDump program from http://www.winpcap.org/windump/install/.

Make sure you are running Nmap in an elevated command prompt.

Also please try it with the official WinPcap 4.0.2 installer, available
at http://www.winpcap.org/install/default.htm. Remove the Nmap winpcap
from "Add or Remove Programs" first, then run the installer.
