This question originated from an earlier NMap question here. Anyways, my NMap will only work inside --unprivileged mode. How can I make NMap operate outside --unprivileged? The same thing persist across Cygwin, ZenMap,and NMap CMD. Information about --iflist, versions, adapters, ect. can be found at the original question.
