I just recently installed Sygate firewall and have been surprised to find out that my ports are regularly being scanned by people all around the globe. Occasionally I notice an IP address that's scanned me before. Is this a normal thing? What is the potential harm in this? Is there an appropriate response to this?

Most of the stuff picked up is internet 'noise' & also your ISP checking if your online. Good to know that your firewall is doing it's job.
