WSL raw socket support for ethernet to allow for nmap functionality
Can not run nmap from WSL due to inability to interface with network sockets. Please enable passthrough or provide documentation / support to allow configuration of ethernet sockets to work with nmap. Was lead here by this discussion: https://github.com/Microsoft/WSL/issues/2039

yes, enable these raw sockets otherwise the only choice I have, I must boot original linux.
It was wrong to forbid raw sockets, at least enable them only on WSL and not in WINDOWS - THANK YOU.
I need this for hping3 & other tools like wireshark!
Do you know how long it will take until this issue is solved?
I'm also using nmap on the Ubuntu Subsystem and get the same error.
At the moment is the Subsystem a little bit useless until this is solved and a lot of my colleagues want to install the Subsystem as well.
Please put that on a higher prio.
Thx in advance. BR
