I have connected to another laptop via the LAN cable, i am able to access the services running on the other laptop via Ip & Port. When i Ping that Ip, the machine is successfully responding. But when i run nmap on that Ip, nmap failed to detect the host. Any one knows why this can happen?

nmap not detecting

  • Have you tried running it with -Pn option? Even though it's an auto-assigned address, nmap should still work. – TheCaptain Jun 10 at 10:59

This ip address call Link Local Ip address. This is not routable. This address valid only to communication within network segment or the broadcast domain that the host is connected.

This is a link local address like infra said. Address that starts with 169.X.X.X is assigned when your computer can't contact the DHCP. It is only available on your local network and is therefore not routable.
