It's been a while since I ran windows as a pentest box, since I got the Mac for work, but from what I remember you have to add a patch to get nmap using raw sockets.
This may have been fixed now, but it's worth checking.

Hi List,

We are currently in the stage of rolling out Windows XP SP2. I know that this had some problems with winpcap a while back. we use all the good open source security tools we can with windows, cos its easier than putty to the linux box.

Des anyone know of any issues, or problems that SP2 may pose from what a security pen-testing box is concerned. Will it affect any Windows based security tools, or are there any other issues it has from a security point of view? Considering it is also my workstation, and hence we have to use windows for it.

Thankyou in Advance,
Steve
