I've recently started playing with Kali on VMWare Player and Metasploitable 2 on VmWare Player. Both are on the same (default install) subnet. Metasploitable 2 has 2 adapters: settings:NAT and Host only, while Kali has only NAT.
If I run Nmap from Kali outside MSFConsole I get open ports:
root@kali:~# nmap -p0-65535 192.168.233.129 Starting Nmap 7.00 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2015-11-21 11:41 EST Nmap scan report for 192.168.233.129 Host is up (0.00011s latency).

When I run db_nmap within MSFConsole I get all ports are filtered:
msf > db_nmap -p 1-4000 126.96.36.199 [*] Nmap: Starting Nmap 7.00 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2015-11-21 11:42 EST [*] Nmap: Nmap scan report for 188.8.131.52 [*] Nmap: Host is up (0.00089s latency). [*] Nmap: All 4000 scanned ports on 184.108.40.206 are filtered [*] Nmap: Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 97.35 seconds
Before running these commands today I did:
apt-get clean && apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get dist-upgrade -y
Yesterday, (I did an
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade) I was getting the same Nmap results, but all ports closed on the Metasploitable VM.
