    Using IPNetMonitor I see a page full of connections to my machine, all are expected except this one:

    TCP FIN_WAIT2 1.133.30.236:25134 1.142.179.76:0

    Anyone know what this is?

    anyone with some time to kill, grab IPNetMonitor from Version Tracker and pull up the Connections window, see if you have something scary like that. Please! Thanks!

    an IP with a ist octet of "1" is highly suspicious... i'd suspect the government is testing Carnivore on your comp and scanning for illegal child porn or something (you DO know about carnivore right?)

    Little paranoid Halleck? :p

    Look around for what runs on port 25134; if you're sure it's not yours then just close it.
