Knocking on the door?

Since posting about the last exercise installing Debian, Solaris, and Fedora there are more of the following sort of log entries from the gateway.

Might just be coincidence, but given the timing I suspect there is some relationship. Could be due to the fact I downloaded the installations (with the exception of Solaris) via bittorrent, and have the bittorrent client (Azureus) running to share back what I pulled down. Could be due to at least one wannabe cracker looking for search keywords (perhaps).

[ Naturally this is not the entire log. Used a simple AWK script to filter out other entries that might yield internal information. I am a bit of a security freak. ]
