NMAP: host seems down, FTP: not connecting (exercise machine for the getting-started module)

i am having some issues with the htb academy host machine. whenever i try to scan the target machine with NMAPwithout the -Pn flag, NMAP exits with the message:host seems down. i also tried FTP, but the connection would not form. i am connected to the eu academy server 2, using the UDP protocol.

For the machines you must use the vpn. If you do not use it you can’t reach the machine.

I used the vpn, that’s the thing

If you dont succeed send screenshot of what u are doing with nmap, and ifconfig command
