nmap 4.20 issue with Mac OS X and VMWare Fusion

Recommended Posts

For some reason the new version of nmap I am getting the following error

getinterfaces: Failed to open ethernet interface (vmnet8). A possible cause on BSD operating systems is running out of BPF devices (see http://seclists.org/lists/nmap-dev/2006 ... /0014.html).

Anyone have any idea's on how to correct this besides deleting the VMWare Fusion interface

sudo ifconfig vmnet8 remove
