I have Zenmap installed on my Windows machine. How can I scan my VPN network? The command I use is:

nmap -T4 -A -v 192.168.0.1-255

But It is quitting with error:

WARNING: Using raw sockets because ppp0 is not an ethernet device. This probably won't work on Windows.

pcap_open_live(ppp0, 100, 0, 2) FAILED. Reported error: Error opening adapter: The system cannot find the device specified. (20).  Will wait 5 seconds then retry.

pcap_open_live(ppp0, 100, 0, 2) FAILED. Reported error: Error opening adapter: The system cannot find the device specified. (20).  Will wait 25 seconds then retry.

Call to pcap_open_live(ppp0, 100, 0, 2) failed three times. Reported error: Error opening adapter: The system cannot find the device specified. (20)

QUITTING!

Have you installed WinPcap?

You may need this on Windows as the OS does not natively handle raw sockets.

you must add -e eth0
