port 6346 connections????

By ^trix ·
I am in the process of trying to help a friend.
His computer is being attacted by connections through port 6346. We looked on google.com for some help on the problem but got none as there is nothing to do with gnutella with him.
Seems there are atotal of 5 different IP addresses that have now started NETBios port probes also.
Am looking for any hel that may be the cause of this. We are thinkin possible hackers that know of the port6346 scans and are using that so as when people see that they are thinking gnutella.
Any help or ides are much apreciated

Doesn't sound like you are using any form of firewall. What internet connection does your friend have ?
If it is an always on type of connection then they should be seriously considering some type of firewall. Go to the following link for a cheap and easy to setup Firewall.

They are using a BlackIce firewall. but yes they are using a DSL line.
It seems that even mr IP address keep attacking but they are all from only 2 locations.
Any other suggestions

Is it Blackice that is saying your friend is being probed ?
With DSL you tend to get a lot of stray packets that shouldn't come to you. It could actually be harmless ?
