I've noticed on my firewall log a couple of tcp connection attempts (from

XWindows that uses port 6000 and that someone would be using to try to
connect to me?
doubtful - it's the destination port that counts
I'm not concerned about, obviously my firewall is working.
But I thought if I asked, I might learn something. Thank you.
Also, a question about list etiquette. After someone answers your question,
is it ok to post a thank you message?
yes it's ok - probably more important to say this resolved my problem to
leave tracks for others that may go down your path and perhaps can find
it in the archives - if it's particularly a troublesome problem...
adding [SOLVED] to the subject is a good thing to do too.
