The phrase "safe against NMAP" does not make any sense. An NMAP scan is not an attack. NMAP detects and reports open ports. It does not tell you whether these open ports serve a legitimate purpose and/or pose a security risk. Nor are open ports the only possible source of security risks. An NMAP scan is only one of many elements in a machine's security ...
The safety measures is dependent on firewall configurations (inbound outbound) and the rules that are set in new installations of the OS's. Comparing operating system based on it's new installations is baseless. Unless there are any services which require a particular TCP/IP port to be open, I see there is no point in comparison as other operating systems ...
Netdiscover finds IP addresses using the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), which matches IP addresses to MAC addresses. However, in VMPlayer the ARP tables for the virtual NAT interface card (VMNet8) are not updated with IP / MAC information from virtual machines that are running in host-only mode. Therefore, there is no response to the ARP requests from ...
A VPN is a solution to this problem, as is Tor (assuming correct configuration). With both of these methods, it is obvious you are using them, however all of your traffic is encrypted between you and some remote endpoint (VPN server, Tor node, etc.) such that nobody on your local network can see your final destination or data.
As far as I know there is no direct USB connectivity possible between two normal computers that is also usable at the same time as a network (which is what you need to scan). I don't even think that you can simply connect two PCs using a simple USB cable, since PC usually only support the USB host mode and with USB one device needs to be in host mode and the ...
The answer is in your question : Warning: OSScan results may be unreliable because we could not find at least 1 open and 1 closed port Nmap literally guesses which OS is on the machine. Didn't work out this time.
