Windows XP Pro SP3 in a Windows domain environment. Zenmap/Nmap 5.0 w/Winpcap 4.1.2 works fine.

Uninstalled 5.0 and ran 6.0 binary installer. Tried using the existing winpcap 4.1.2 and then uninstalled and tried 
with the bundled winpcap 4.1.2 and got the same error:

Command line in Zenmap is:

nmap -T4 -A -v -PE -PS22,25,80 -PA21,23,80,3389

Tried nmap -iflist and my LAN adapter is eth0, so tried this:

nmap -T4 -A -v -PE -PS22,25,80 -PA21,23,80,3389 -e eth0

... and got the same results.

Uninstalled 6.0, reinstalled 5.0 and it works fine.

Google doesn't show much about this error except in the context of development of older versions.

If it matters, I have the ShrewSoft VPN client installed on this computer.

The VPN might be the problem. Can you send me the --iflist output?
