Hello,

I'm having trouble in scanning with nmap -sP 192.168.178.1/24.

setup_target: failed to determine route datalink offset failed for type 127

Before, I had trouble with the same scanning with error message: "setup_target: failed to determine route datalink offset failed for type 127". I got this error message since the last update/upgrade on 2nd of Dec.

So I uninstalled nmap/zenmap and other dependencies.

Afterwards, I reinstalled the dependencies kali-linux-default, msfpc, commix, unicorn-magic, sparta. Lastly, I reinstalled metasploit-framework with nmap/zenmap as its package.

And then, I've scanned the network and got the error messages.

It said: "cannot find nmap-payloads. UDP payloads are disabled." and "cannot find nmap-mac-prefixes: Ethernet vendor correlation will not be performed."

Did I miss something at the reinstallation?

I'm using Kali Linux Kali-Rolling 2019.4

Thanks for reporting this. Are you using Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), or are you using Kali on a Linux kernel? Please provide output of nmap --version and uname -a.

The value 127 is usually LINKTYPE_IEEE802_11_RADIOTAP, which may indicate that the WiFi interface is in monitor mode. Try setting the interface to managed mode (normal operations) to avoid the datalink_offset error.

To diagnose the "cannot find file" errors, please provide output with the -d2 option included. This will give us information about where Nmap may be looking for files.
