    Sorry, false alarm. I discovered what it was....
    It was the Redhat Up2date applet that periodically
    is checks for new updates. I guess the dnsstuff
    IP reverse maps is a bit out of date and the IP
    address appeared to come from the DOD. Ah well,
    live and learn...

    Subject: Abuse by Dod?

    Errg... I installed Firestarter on FC4 and was wondering
    why my HD and network was thrashing around and checking the
    active connection page revealed:

    Source-----------------Destination-----------------Port------Service-----Program
    207.132.177.100 [my FC4 IP address] 443 HTTPS python

    I stopped this "attack" by disabling HTTPS protocol in the policy
    tab and that stopped the attack. Geez, now what do I do to stop
    whomeever is doing it so that my HTTPS is available?

    I tracked the network owner and fired off an abuse complaint
    to: abuse@nic.mil but like this is gonna work. Hmm.... maybe
    the Homeland Security is gonna come after me... heh heh.

    Does anyone care to know what is going on?
