There was a blocked connection to my box
Ubuntu doesn't have a firewall installed... So I had to install one... I dlded firestarter and started running it...
Then I saw this on the blocked connections event log:
Of course, I also looked at the system logs and found this:
Time: Feb 14 03:24:32 Source: 22.214.171.124 Destination: 126.96.36.199 In IF: ppp0 Out IF: Port: 6101 Length: 48 ToS: 0x00 Protocol: TCP Service: Unknown
Should I worry?
localhost kernel [4383583.233000] Inbound IN=ppp0 OUT= MAC= SRC=188.8.131.52 DST=184.108.40.206 LEN=63 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=30 ID=63808 PROTO=UDP SPT=2967 DPT=2967 LEN=43
I am using dial-up...
Oh! Another one!
My question is, what do I do with this? Is somebody trying to poke around my computer?

* Guess this is another argument for techiemoe against Ubuntu... :mrgreen: OK, techie, you were right in considering Ubuntu a piece of crap *
