    Hello all,

    I posted this message earlier on another forum, but I got no replies in the OS section. Someone is trying a dictionary attack on my machine, but I cannot find their IP addy to attempt to block them. The WinBlows event viewer is useless, and I cannot find any good software for logging ALL incoming connections. The server is on a public IP doing web, email, ftp, and several other apps. There is no firewall, but I wouldn't even know what ports to try and block anyway.

    There has been hundreds and hundreds of attempts over the past few days... Any ideas?

    try this tool from grc.com, when it scans you, type in the address and do a trace. Sygate 5 pro will also do a trace of scannersand tell you who they are. The name of grc's programme is called idserve, it's a small application 26kb.

    A good free firewall is kerio, which will allow you to set up a rules based firewall, i'll give you the link below on how to set up kerio as a rules based firewall, hope this helps!
