    Unhappy firewall questions :/


    uh im parinoid so i installed a firewall called firestarter and it keeps telling me "Hit from *ip* detected" im not really doing nething and it keeps telling me different ips one after the other...am i supposed to be scared? or is that just stupid bs? on their site it said that if something was wrong an event would be in red but black and gray where nothing to worry about. but the damn firestarter system tray icon is flashing red and keeps telling me some ip Hit me? also im not getting any kind of prompts to block ips or ports from it..
