I am learning to use nmap. I am observing that most of the times when running a command like
proxychains nmap -sT -PN -n -sV -p 80 XX.XX.XX.XX, I am getting the following output:
Starting Nmap 7.01 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2016-11-25 18:11 UTC |S-chain|-<>-127.0.0.1:9050-<>-126.96.36.199:8080-<>-188.8.131.52:8080-<--timeout Nmap scan report for XX.XX.XX.XX Host is up (16s latency). PORT STATE SERVICE VERSION 80/tcp closed http Service detection performed. Please report any incorrect results at https://nmap.org/submit/ .
What I can understand is that the server failed to connect to the third proxy.
What I do not understand is: Does that mean that nmap packets are going from the second proxy to the target directly or the proxychaining is failing entirely and nmap packets are sent directly from my pc and revealing my identity?
Note: I'm running the tor browser, and therefore routing my proxychains through the tor network.
