Don't use someone else's nmap results, especially ones conducted over
network links of unknown capabilities.  More than likely, the above is 
merely showing you some router's filters, between you and the nmap host.

Just use a second local machine to nmap the first one.  I believe you
can even use Knoppix for that.
