I'm copying the message below as written from an IRC guy mx8manger,
who contacted #nmap yesterday.
Since his message is a bit cryptic, I'll explain it here below.
Basically, what he tried was to nmap -sT scanme.nmap.org behind his
proxychains. The error message, not included in his original e-mail,
but posted on the IRC, is following:
root () linux-pc:~# proxychains nmap -sV scame.nmap.org
Starting Nmap 6.41SVN ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-09-22 00:31 AST
|DNS-response| scame.nmap.org is 188.8.131.52
184.108.40.206/0 looks like an IPv6 target specification -- you have
to use the -6 option.
WARNING: No targets were specified, so 0 hosts scanned.
Nmap done: 0 IP addresses (0 hosts up) scanned in 1.56 seconds
(original source: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6138529/)
(he said that -sT reacts the same way). I marked it as a "possible
regression" because the guy said that this setup used to work with one
of the older versions of Nmap.
We probably don't have the e-mail address for the fellow. I attach the IRC log.
