You should talk to Andy, thread "kerio and listening", he has the
same problems as you ;-)
I don't know the exact mechanism involved but guess that 'listening'
applications emit packets saying " I'm ready to connect " through
a specific port. If you don't want that connection to take place, you
must block incoming packets to that application, in your firewall.
