Host Blocking Probes

edited October 2019 in VPN Connection

I wanted to ask also when you run NMAP are you also getting that:

"Note: Host seems down. If it is really up, but blocking our ping probes, try -Pn
Nmap done: 1 IP address (0 hosts up) scanned in 2.96 seconds"

Nor can I ping the host.

I have been frequently getting this error message. Legacy and blue.
Ive switched different servers but it seems like others are also having this issue also.

So basically, nmap scans return nothing.

It does show that I am connected under server status..

Anyone know what the deal is?


  • I think many of us are having this issue, I just posted in "Machines" folder as I've determined (at least for me) that it isn't a connection issue, but only an issue for every Windows host. Try a linux box, and see if the problem goes away.


    They do state that using Windows as the primary attack machine is not recommended.
    Might be some other tips and tricks there as well.
    Haven't had any issues on Kali yet on my end.

    Always happy to help others and remember to +respect me if I helped you ; )
