Nmap / Mac OS X / VMWare Fusion Questions
From: Lance Spitzner <lance () spitzner net>

Oh great and wise Nmap developers, a most humble question.

On a Macbook I am running VMware Fusion. I have several Guest OS images on the Macbook, all in Host Only networking mode. When I attempt to scan the VM images from the Mac Host Nmap says it cannot see the VMware interfaces. See Nmap error message below. Remember, Host Only networking uses the vmnet1 interface, so I'm trying to scan from the Mac Host OS several VM images on vmnet1.

Words of wisdom appreciated.

Thanks!
