When I try scanning an Hamachi client’s 126.96.36.199/8 IP address, nmap
states “doArp can only handle IPv4 addresses” and aborts. I know
this is because Hamachi’s assignment of 188.8.131.52/8 IP addresses is
unofficial, but it would be nice if the valid IPv4 address check
could be disabled so Hamachi clients and other hosts with
unofficially-assigned IP addresses could still be scanned.
I searched for a solution/workaround but only found discussions
about Hamachi’s unofficial IP address assignments, not any way to
scan Hamachi clients.
I do not think these details matter in this case, but I am currently
using nmap v5.50 on Windows 7 Professional IA-32.
There must be something else going wrong, because I can ARP scan
