when i scan an IP using nmap(zenmap) for windows on vista,it gives me this error
Code
Starting Nmap 5.10BETA1 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2010-04-22 21:09 Sri Lanka Standard Time

NSE: Loaded 35 scripts for scanning.

Initiating Ping Scan at 21:09

Scanning 79.178.114.63 [8 ports]

WARNING: Using raw sockets because ppp3 is not an ethernet device. This probably won't work on Windows.



pcap_open_live(ppp3, 100, 0, 2) FAILED. Reported error: Error opening adapter: The system cannot find the device specified. (20).  Will wait 5 seconds then retry.

pcap_open_live(ppp3, 100, 0, 2) FAILED. Reported error: Error opening adapter: The system cannot find the device specified. (20).  Will wait 25 seconds then retry.

Call to pcap_open_live(ppp3, 100, 0, 2) failed three times. Reported error: Error opening adapter: The system cannot find the device specified. (20)

There are several possible reasons for this, depending on your operating system:

LINUX: If you are getting Socket type not supported, try modprobe af_packet or recompile your kernel with SOCK_PACKET enabled.

*BSD:  If you are getting device not configured, you need to recompile your kernel with Berkeley Packet Filter support.  If you are getting No such file or directory, try creating the device (eg cd /dev; MAKEDEV <device>; or use mknod).

*WINDOWS:  Nmap only supports ethernet interfaces on Windows for most operations because Microsoft disabled raw sockets as of Windows XP SP2.  Depending on the reason for this error, it is possible that the --unprivileged command-line argument will help.

SOLARIS:  If you are trying to scan localhost or the address of an interface and are getting '/dev/lo0: No such file or directory' or 'lo0: No DLPI device found', complain to Sun.  I don't think Solaris can support advanced localhost scans.  You can probably use "-PN -sT localhost" though.





QUITTING!

I think the part you provided right there holds the answer.
WARNING: Using raw sockets because ppp3 is not an ethernet device. This probably won't work on Windows.


Also,
*WINDOWS: Nmap only supports ethernet interfaces on Windows for most operations because Microsoft disabled raw sockets as of Windows XP SP2. Depending on the reason for this error, it is possible that the --unprivileged command-line argument will help.


Maybe, I don't know.


That applause I receive from y'all on posting this post would have gotten me drunk on power if I hadn't already been high on life.

Did you try the -sT and/or the -Pn options when trying to run the scan as the link I gave you suggested?
And either way, for those who know nmap well it might also help if you show what parameters were passed. However, it says right in your error message that chances are what you're trying to do will not work on windows so you might not want to get your hopes up.
