If nmap has returned this device type, perhaps it's being used for its intent and is port forwarding to the IIS server that is hosting the .asp application you mention.

Measure twice cut once.

While doing an OS fingerprint to a client using nmap, the system was fingerprinted to :

Panasonic IP Technology Broadband Networking Gateway, KX-HGW200

I am assuming that this results are caused by a IP stack manipulation tool of some sort running on a Windows platform since this server has an ASP website hosted. I would like to ask on any tools that runs on Windows that can perform such a task. I have research such tools but all of them run on Linux systems.

Another thing to assume, is it possible that a device prior to the server (i.e. inline IDS or firewall) is capable of manipulation the IP Personality (i.e. its header values incl TCP) to mislead any OS fingerprinting mechanism. Are there such features on opensource and commercial devices?

Any information is gladly appreciated. Thanks!
