Yes there is a cisco border router (12.x) in front of it PIX is a 6.2(x)

we weren't able to play with the router because the carrier ISP owned it, not our client. we sent a note to the ISP 
but, as usual, they ignored it. perhaps the cisco experts (not me) in this list may be able to shed some light.

in any case, we weren't _too_ concerned by the router setup since it didn't really expose anything useful to outsiders 
(as far as we know) except the necessary open ports of the servers behind the PIX. but just the same, it would be nice 
to know how and why the router affected the scan.

Thoughts? Although the nmap version wont fix anything or change the results
becasue you can still make a manul connection.

i know :) i just mentioned it FYI (for-your-information).
