Probably pretty good advice.  But it screws up the Frazierwall report as the 
firewall can't seem to keep up with it.  The log gets up to around 150KB and 
drops the earliest hits.

I shut the modem and firewall down for over 24 hours and switched the eth0 
board.  Now I am no longer getting hits on TCP port 18395.  They are UDP on 
port 2849.  196 in the first 90 minutes.  Quite obviously, something is going 
on that I don't understand.
