NMap Scanning Issues
From: 09Sparky () gmail com
Date: 28 Apr 2006 13:41:11 -0000

I am trying to run Nmap both on specific ports and then multiple ports (1-1024, 1-65535, etc).  My issue or is this:  
when I run small port scans; my results come back fine (open, closed, filtered).  I have confirmed that the results are 
accurate.  However, when I attempt to scan multiple ports I get various unreliable results.  For instance, a port that 
I could have confirmed either open or closed may show up as filtered or the opposite.

No configuration changes have been made and no firewall on remote site.

Additional Notes: 
-I am running over the Internet
-I am running from behind a Netgear Firewall/VPN/Router (FW114) with NAT
-Cable/DSL Connection (Fast)

I am wondering if my router is timing out or perhaps I am performing a DOS of my own router. Does any have any thoughts 
or experienced this type of problem? If so, does anyone have any recommendations?
