I'm trying to use nmap to check for all hosts that are up on a subnet. I'm
using this syntax:

 nmap -sP

 Bit, I'm getting the follwing error messge;

 Starting nmap 3.50 ( ) at 2004-10-05 07:22 EDT
 sendto in send_ip_raw: sendto(4, packet, 28, 0,, 16) => Can't
 assign requested addres

 Here's the approriate NIC config:

		 inet netmask 0xffffff80 broadcast
		 ether 00:01:fa:ff:fa:bc
		 media: Ethernet autoselect (10baseT/UTP) status: active

Am I using this incorectly? Yes I'm loged in as root, when I try this. I't
on FreeBSD STABLE built a couple of weeks ago.
