Incompatibility with nmap based products such as Wireshark
There is a known compatibility issue with the Windows agent and products that use the
nmap library (versions below 0.9988) within the Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) framework, due to a bug in the
nmap code. This can cause a conflict with the agent when a number of third party products are also installed, such as:
- Older versions of Wireshark
- Kaspersky Endpoint Security
- ESET Endpoint Security
- Products that use NMAP 0.9988 or below
- Products that use PCAP
The most common solution is to update the third party software or ensure that nmap version 0.9988 or above is present on the system.
If the USS Agent detects a failure with
nmap then it will gracefully stop intercepting requests and display a warning to the user.
Installing version 0.997 or later of the
npcap library provides a workaround to the issue.
