*g* .. seems as if some viruses/worms try to connect to your server and
watch out for exploits in IIS from Microsoft - IMHO not really dangerous
if you run apache :-).
Unfortunately I don't know if you can protect your server from such
connections through a forewall.

geboren von einer Frau und unter das Gesetz getan,
damit er die, die unter dem Gesetz waren, erlöste,
damit wir die Kindschaft empfingen.
