    I recently set up a firewall after I discovered some bizzare connections to my computer from several computers with "netstat." Reverse nslookups showed some were just the usual ad servers trying to make money on us again...

    However, one or two seem to not go anywhere. One distrubing IP address typed into the browser lead to a page saying web-error where a button apparently emails your address to them. I changed providers (unrelated reasons, I moved), and I'm still getting the same thing.

    Any tools or tips, links out there to help me to find out what the heck is so persistant? It doesn't seem serious yet, but a bit unnerving.

    [oops]this should be in the networking board...
