I'm seeing odd thiungs in my FW log.

Running SLES 8, all YOU updates applied.
Machine has v. limited services (ssh, apache, tomcat, mysql, postfix).
Ports 80 and 8080 have just been opened globally, but this happened before
then.
The only other ports available (22, 3306) are to a few systems locally.
Only one nic is configured (and plugged in), eth1.

The SuSE FW set up is as comes out of the box except as detailed above,
although I had more logging turned on initially... umm, the extra logging
is in effect for the entires below. (Log _all_ dropped packets).

Question:
Why am I seeing these connections being acceppted and dropped on port 1433??

No, my machine isn't called xxx.
The same goes for the IP/MAC address.

Any ideas?

TIA,

Tom.
