Hi all,


nmap v6.00 has problems if a wlan interface is installed/activated.
OS: GNU/Linux 3.0


My findings (nmap 5.51 vs nmap 6.00):

=======================================================================

(1) nmap 5.51 with deactivated wlan interface (--iflist):

(4) nmap 6.00 with activated wlan interface in master mode (--iflist):

As you can see, nmap 5.51 works well in any case (1 and 3).
In the second case (2) nmap 6.00 finds no routes (but works).
In the last case (4) nmap 6.00 finds no routes and no interfaces.

Other people with totally different hardware seem to have exactly
the same problem: http://talk.maemo.org/archive/index.php/t-48673.html

I hope my findings will help you to solve the problem.
If you need further information, please let me know.


Cheers, Tom
