While using nmap i get the message from my firewall that the system being scanned is trying to send vpn messages is this normal and should i allow my firewall to be configured to accept these messages?

It is possible that as the scan runs it will send requests ( depending on the options used in nmap ) on the common vpn ports. The target may interpret this as a connection request and reply accordingly. This happens a lot on other ports like smtp, http and ftp although I haven't encountered with VPN.

Personally I like nmap. It's got a lot of options and does an okay job, not to mention the price is right! Hell, they used it in matrix so it can't be all bad! :P
