    Re: detecting NAP on Wireshake

    My understanding of the situation:
    When you are using wireshark to scan from inside a VM hooked to the network with NAT, you are scanning the VM's virtual network and not the real LAN. This is due to the nature of NATs.
    Now to fix it, you need to get wireshark out of the VM's fakenetwork and onto the real network:
    Install BackTrack natively, and use wireshark from there. Works the best, and only a small amount of work needed.
    Install Wireshark to windows. You might need to fiddle with drivers.
    Do some network jiggery to allow wireshark to act like a host on the real LAN. I doubt that Windows can actually do this.
