Nmap 5.5: Error compiling our pcap filter: unknown host 'null'
From: Noah <knowpo () gmail com>

Hello:

 A google search yields zero results for the following error :

            Error compiling our pcap filter: unknown host 'null'

It occurs when performing "nmap -Pn -A www.microsoft.com" as well as a few other hosts I have seen.

Without the option -A this error is not given, so my assumption is that it is a server configuration.
What sets off this error?

Thanks,
Noah
