of course. thats because there is activity out there. Could be SNMP, ICMP, whatever. Thats why you have a firewall.

as posted many issues and probes cause that not the least of which are probes by infected machines with code red etc.. you can help stop this by going to <A HREF="http://mynetwatchman.com" target="_new"> this site </A> and setting up your firewall to forward attacks to them where they will then notify the offending ISP's
