what made me think this is that about 11pm every night this past week that 
ip address would connect into my system and make over 100 connections and 
stay connected for three and four hours at a time. It wouldnt have bothered 
me to much if it was just once but this has happened at the same IP ADDRESS and time of night everynight this week. Just seemed kinda fishy 
to me.

In my view i dont see any need for one system(IP) alone to make that many 
requests and tie up the rest of the internet connection.

and in regaurds  to a possible exploit i dont think anyting like that 

Thanks for your response,
